Volunteer Training

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Arizona Academic Decathlon.

Training for all regions is centralized with the State Competition Committee and conducted virtually. Educational materials are provided here for reference.

All judges and proctors should review the Intro to Judging video shown here. Then click into the menus below according to your volunteer assignment(s), view/download the associated handouts, and watch the short videos within. Finally, please record your training completion at the bottom of the page.

We appreciate your support of this program and the decathletes across Arizona!

In these videos, you’ll learn about the essay event and how to score an essay. You’ll also score two sample essays using the rubric, so be sure to have the handouts shown below open and ready to refer to.

If you have any questions, please contact your essay chair.

Please watch the training videos and thoroughly review the handouts. Everything you need to judge the interviews will be provided to you, including general and area of study questions, which you will receive on competition day. (Those will not be available to download here.)

If you have any questions, please contact your interview chair.

Please watch the training videos and thoroughly review the handouts. Everything you need to judge speeches will be provided to you, including the official Impromptu Speech topics, which you will receive on competition day. (Those will not be available to download here.)
