No experience needed to sign-up as a judge for the Denver Prelims! Make sure to read the Rules & Regulations (*linked below) for the competition you would like to judge, and there will be an online Judges Session to go over any questions you might have. All potential judges must pass the Calibration Day on September 16, but do not fear, we have some great Head Judges that will lead the way and teach you the skills need to become a rock star judge. This is a great first step if you would like to judge at National level!
