I have judged Public Forum Debate as well as most speech events [Impromptu, Extemp, Dramatic, Humorous, Duo, POI, Original Oratory, and Informative Speaking]. I've judged this variety of speech events for 4 regional tournaments this season.

When I'm judging speech I'm looking for speakers to be practiced, confident, and engaging. I look particularly for good speech organization/clarity. I expect speakers to have good poise [meaning good posture, avoiding distracting movement, loud & clear speaking, as well as professionalism - no hands in pockets, shuffling feet, touching hair, etc.].
