There are two different judging opportunities at Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week:

Stockholders' Judge
The purpose of the Stockholders' Presentation is to allow students the opportunity to explain in detail the result of their company's operation over the equivalent of a two-year period (8 consecutive quarters). They are following a prescribed set of instructions concerning what the judges will be looking for during the Friday competition.

Advertising Judge
As with the Stockholders' competition, the students have also been following a stringent set of guidelines with respect to their Advertising competition. They have been told that the judges will be assessing how each company's advertising campaign ties in with their overall marketing strategy. (e.g. - demographics of target population, etc.)

The main role of each judge is to act as a positive catalyst for the students when they present their new insights on business and the future; and to represent the business community as supporters of the students' continued development as they learn more about business and themselves.

The Orientation Session for all Judges begins at 7:00 a.m. on each Friday of PFEW. The last student presentations finish around 2:30 p.m. We ask that judges try to arrive on campus on Thursday evening so that they have a chance to visit with the students and learn more about their week before the judging begins on Friday morning.
