Ventura County’s Premier Academic Competitions Seek Volunteers

Ventura County students have a long, proud tradition of excellence in local, state and national academic competitions. This is only possible through the strong commitment and partnership of our local volunteers. On average, more than 400 volunteer judges are needed to support the 2,500 students that annually participate in Ventura County Academic Decathlon, Mock Trial, Science Fair and VEX Robotics competitions. These high profile competitions are coordinated by the Ventura County Office of Education and provide hands-on learning experiences that go beyond what’s taught in the classroom. Many Ventura County participants have advanced to the state and national levels of these competitions. Anyone interested in volunteering is invited to register online using the links provided below.
