Opportunity with DECA - March 1, 2019


Community Service Opportunity: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

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, performance-based event, 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 1ST  from 8am to 4pm at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.

“During the past two years, I volunteered as a judge for the hospitality & tourism sales event, 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.  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.
