Call for Preliminary Judges – NCET’s Governor’s Cup Business Plan Competition

We’re expecting a record number of entries for the 8th annual Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup Collegiate Business Competition and we need a large number of Preliminary Judges to review the written business plans.

We expect about 75 plans this year, and we’ll ask each judge to review three or four of them. The plans will be available online by March 23 and you’ll need to complete the online judging before March 30. Each plan takes about two hours to evaluate and we ask you to provide one or two pages of feedback for each business plan.

Please note that we also need a few "standby" judges to be available April 1 – 4 in case any of the other Preliminary Judges aren’t able to complete their assigned plans.

We will hold two conference calls before March 23 to brief our new judges and answer questions.

If you’re interested, please contact me at or (775) 315-7635. The students depend on your feedback, so please make sure that your schedule permits you to participate BEFORE you commit to serve as a judge. You can find more information about the Governor’s Cup at

Thanks in advance for your consideration. All of us at NCET and the Governor’s Cup appreciate it.
