Judging/grader fees:

  • Judging/grader fees are used to hire additional judges/graders to help speed up the tournament. These fees are not part of our profit.

Speech/Debate Judging Obligations:

Schools are obligated to provide judges for each of the speech/debate events that they enter students in. Judge obligations are generated with the following:

  • CX Debate: One judge required for every 2 teams entered (or portion thereof)

  • LD Debate: One judge required for every 4 entries (or portion thereof)

  • Informative/Persuasive: One judge required for every 6 students (or portion thereof)

  • Prose/Poetry: One judge required for every 5 students (or portion thereof)

  • All speech and debate judges must have a TABROOM account. Ballots will be completed in tabroom.

  • Debate judges may enter only one pool, either LD or CX, and they may not fulfill any other obligation.

  • A judge may be entered into the judges’ pool for both Extemp and Interp, but they must be available for all rounds of both contests. Extem and Interp judges may not cover debate judges’ obligations.

  • Schools will be charged a fee of $150 for each missing Debate, Extem, or Interp judge.

  • If a school has a missing judge for Debate, Extemp, or Interp, then your school risks the chance of that student not being able to compete if there are not enough judges to cover the contest.

Judges & Graders - Brock pays $150:

If you are interested in being hired for any of the following events please email Teresa Wilcox at twilcox@brockisd.net with your information and qualifications.

  • Ready Writing & Journalism

  • Speech - Prose, Poetry, Informative, & Persuasive

  • Debate - CX & LD

  • Speech and Debate judges need a tabroom account

Academic Judging Obligations:

  • If you have entries in Computer Applications then you need to send a QUALIFIED/TRAINED person to grade/score the contest. Schools that cannot provide judges for this contest may opt to pay a $75 judge fee.

  • Ready Writing/Journalism: We will hire graders for the day to cover these events. The cost per entry for these events will be higher than other non-speech events to cover the cost of the hired graders. No need to send graders for these events.

  • For all remaining academic events, each school is obligated to provide a grader in any contest that they enter students in.

Hospitality and Concessions Stand:

In the tabroom, please go to the “concessions” tab. Please include all adults in the concession counts in the tabroom registration including bus drivers. We do not charge for the hospitality room but it is very important that I have an accurate count to be able to have enough food for the day.

Please include student lunch counts in the tabroom concession counts. Having the option to purchase tickets allows the lunch prices to be added to your invoice. I have created four choices for student lunches:

  • # Lunch - adults at debate (JH) campus

  • # Lunch - adults at non-debate (HS) campus

  • # Lunch - debate campus (JH) purchase lunch tickets with invoice

  • # Lunch - debate campus (JH) students paying cash for lunch

  • # Lunch - non-debate campus (HS) purchase lunch tickets with invoice

  • # Lunch - non-debate campus (HS) student paying cash for lunch
