We Invite you to Judge the 2014 World Affairs Challenge!
Each year dozens of local teachers and professionals join us at the World Affairs Challenge as judges. Their role is essential to the success of the WAC in meeting our goal of fostering life long learners. Judges don’t only grade team presentations and collaborative questions. They end up learning a lot themselves!
Based on your feedback over the past several years, input from community judges, universities, and global companies, we have made some important changes:
The judging criteria for WAC will be modified to focus more heavily on rewarding 21st Century Skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, cultural awareness, and communication, all essential skills for tomorrow’s workers and leaders.
New judging criteria will be added to recognize the diversity of presentations, providing a more level judging field.
As always, serving as a judge is a purely voluntary effort. There is no registration cost. Coffee, breakfast, and lunch are complimentary. Judges will have the opportunity to spend the day interacting with fellow community leaders and volunteers, local NGOs, and our future leaders and problem solvers!
Judges must be available to stay for all of the judging portions of the event (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
Judges are strongly encouraged to attend judge training. The judges training dates and times are:
Saturday February 22, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.
Thursday February 27 at 6:00 p.m.
Please email Emily Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org and to let her know which session you will be attending. Both sessions will be held at the Posner Center, 1031 33rd Street, Denver, CO 80205, in the Board Conference Room on the 2nd floor. If you have judged in the past you are not required to participate in the full training, but please review this guide and watch these videos to learn the differences in the process this year.
