What will I have to do if I Volunteer to judge? 


The LGEC has registered an astonishing 250 teams to compete in its first year!  
That represents roughly 700 students from across the Commonwealth who will learn about entrepreneurship through a project-based, real world experience. 

The competition is built around 5 Regional competitions in zones across the state, followed by a Final in Lexington at the new Gatton School of Business and Economics. Teams will have 10 minutes to pitch their businesses, followed by 10 minutes for question and answer, and finally a 10 minute period for judges to finish scoring before the next team pitch. 

The LGEC is using a new online portal designed by Glow Touch Technologies.  To judge you should click on the link to your zone and register in the portal. Prior to the competition judges will receive information on location, parking, judging criteria to consider, and a summary of the teams they will be judging.  

Each regional will need to have it’s own judges coming from that region. 

Zone 1 - April 10th, 2017 - Murray State - 12 judges

Zone 2 - April 11th, 2017 - WKU - 30 judges

Zone 3 - April 12th, 2017 - Georgetown College - 45 Judges 

Zone 4 - April 12th, 2017 - Berea College - 30 Judges  (Yes two are on the same day.)

Zone 5 - April 13th, 2017 - University of Pikeville - 35 judges

At each location judges can expect the following itinerary:
8:00 Judges Training. 
8:45 Welcome from the Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton.
9:00 Competition starts. 
Lunch will be provided.
Judges should expect to score  7/8 LGEC teams. 
The awards at each competition will be presented by 2pm or 2:30pm.
