Join the Team Behind the Teams


You don't have to be a high school student to be part of the Academic Decathlon® community. All over the country, people volunteer to help make our events possible.






We're grateful to have such active volunteers, alumni and non-alumni alike, supporting the program.

We depend on volunteers to fill roles including, but not limited to:

  • Judging speeches
  • Interviewing students
  • Reading essays
  • Proctoring Super Quiz™ (as shown in the photo)
  • Setting up venues
  • Guiding students
  • Reaching out to the media

To find out how you can get involved at an event near you, please contact your state director. We're grateful to have such active volunteers, alumni and non-alumni alike, supporting the program; your enthusiasm is infectious for staff and students alike.
