Judge Shadow Program

Have you ever wondered what judges are looking for when they are watching your test? What are the responsibilities of a scribe? We invite you to be their “shadow” for a day! ESDCTA youth members have the opportunity to learn first hand what goes into judging and scribing a test by auditing in a judge’s booth for a full or half day at an ESDCTA-registered schooling show.

We are proud to offer a long list of judges and competitions who want to help our youth further their education! Members are required to contact both the judge and the show manager to receive “shadow” approval.

This program is ESDCTA Youth Education Award accredited. Members will receive 4 credits for a full day of shadowing and 2 credits for a half day. Don’t forget to bring a Participation Form with you for the judge to sign. The Participation Form can be found here.

Please contact any of the Youth Committee Co-Chairs for more information on this great opportunity.
