being a judge for the lgec
In it's first year, the LGEC registered an astonishing 250 teams! That represents roughly 700 students from across the Commonwealth who learned about entrepreneurship through a project-based, real world experience.
This would not have been possible without the help of volunteer judges from around Kentucky, which is where you come in.
The competition is built around regional competitions across the state that are followed by a Finals competition. Student teams have 10 minutes to pitch their business ideas, followed by 10 minutes of question and answer by the judges. Judges then evaluate the student pitches on scorecards.
The LGEC is using a new online portal designed by GlowTouch Technologies. Registration for judges will open in February 2018. If you are interested in serving as a judge, please use the information below to plan ahead and revisit this site to register in February 2018.
Prior to their regional competition, judges will receive information on location, parking, criteria to consider, and a summary of the teams they will be judging.
Each regional competition will need to have its own judges coming from that region.
