Thank you for volunteering to judge for Delaware Odyssey of the Mind!

Without you it would not possible to put on our tournaments. Our creative students from schools and organizations across the state are depending on you and we appreciate the time you are willing to give us and this program.

There are three components to judges training. All judges, both new and experienced, must complete all three components.

The first component is an online General Training.

This training is required for all judges as judges must be certified/re-certified each year.

The online training is a narrated, one-hour PowerPoint presentation that has been uploaded to YouTube. You can watch the training at any time.

Since this training is recorded, it may be replayed anytime at this link. A copy of the slide presentation may be downloaded here.

The second component of judges training is the certification test.
