We are using online balloting for speech - ALL judges must have a linked Tabroom account in order to judge. This is a document that helps explain the Asynchronous Judging portion. All judges must attend the AM or PM judge instructions in the judges room. (see schedule above).
We request all judges review this Cultural Competence Judge Training document, created by the NSDA to ensure the most equitable environment possible.
Here is a useful website with instructions for judges, coaches, and competitors about how to use our online tournament hosting platform classroom.cloud. Make sure each participant has familiarized themselves with navigating tabroom.com and the classrooms.cloud format. There are a number of instructional videos.
Speakers will enter the room one at a time. To see assigned Impromptu Speaker Report Times click here. This document may be adjusted as the tournament goes on. After speakers finish they will leave the room. Judges will deliver the three topic choices each speaker will have by putting them in the chat. Judges will time prep and speech delivery and give time signals.
