Volunteers needed for regional Academic Decathlon

The San Diego County Office of Education is seeking adult volunteers to help with the San Diego County Academic Decathlon on Saturday, Feb. 2, at Olympian High School in Chula Vista.  The Academic Decathlon enables academically-oriented students to enjoy the same sense of competition as athletes.  The decathlon’s San Diego Region includes high schools from Sweetwater High School District, San Diego Unified School District, Fallbrook High, and two private schools, St. Augustine and Academy of Our Lady of Peace.

Volunteers are needed for proctoring written tests and judging the students speeches.  No previous experience necessary.  Volunteers need only be objective.  A thorough explanation of volunteer duties and written guidelines will be provided at the orientation session prior to the start of the competition.

If interested in volunteering, call Nicole Shina at 858-292-3850 or sign up online at www.sdcoe.net/ad.
