BE A JUDGE

Impact the Leaders of Tomorrow—Be a Judge

Now you can make a difference for the next generation with only a few hours. At Washington Business Week, high school students learn crucial life skills as they role-play as industry professionals, launch a company, and solve real-world challenges. Who will be the winning team? You be the judge!

At our end-of-week competition, the fresh faces and questions of the judges are what make our events both challenging and unforgettable. You’ll return to work on Monday refreshed and inspired by the innovation and teamwork of the next generation.

Stockholders Presentation

At the Stockholders Presentations, evaluate student performance as they run a business using our new business simulation software WILE – Washington’s Innovative Learning Environment, and provide feedback on the quality of their presentation and teamwork. Questions are provided in advance.

Business week was a mutually beneficial experience for me. I volunteered to impress my boss, but spending time with so many ambitious young people, rekindled my belief in volunteering for events like this. Nice work Business Week, our future is brighter with programs like this.
