Community Service

Looking for a way to give back to the hospitality community this year? Why not donate your time as a judge for Washington DECA? Washington DECA prepares high school students to become emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. They have been powered by 70 years of teachers, students, parents & business partners uniting to grow the next generation. Washington DECA is hosting a competitive event which is performance-based requiring demonstration of knowledge and skill in a project or role play scenario concentrated in entrepreneurship, marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.

It is being held on Friday, March 2nd from 8am to 4pm at the Maydenbauer Center in Bellevue.

“During the past two years, I volunteered as a judge for the hospitality & tourism sales and thoroughly enjoyed listening to students prepare, present and role play their solutions. As a judge, I was asked to complete a rating sheet and provide written feedback after their role play (where they did well and areas they could improve upon.) I was impressed with some of the individual students who were poised, confident, knowledgeable, and interested in pursuing their future career goals. It’s a great way to give back to our future leaders.” –Ruth Trail

PSBTA has been a supporter of Washington DECA as their students are our future and our input will help them to become leaders in our business community in the future.

If you are interested in volunteering as a judge, please contact Linda Andersen at or via phone at 206-285-1195. Flyer is attached for more information.
