An important part of making the National Tournament equitable, safe, and educational for all competitors is ensuring that our judges are well-trained. Please share this course with all of your judges! Regardless of their experience level, all judges can use a reminder of how to use cultural competency standards while adjudicating our students. This free course is about 7 minutes long. At the end, you can watch a sample DI performance and compare your comments to the ones curated by our staff.
Looking for additional training? This course is an excerpt from Adjudicating Speech and Debate, also available for free on the NFHS Learning Center. The full-length course helps you identify the different types of speech and debate events, review basic judging guidelines, and includes example student performances so you can practice judging while receiving tips on what to note during an actual round. Take the full course online here.
Thank you to the National Federation of High Schools for partnering with us to create these courses!-----------------------------
