Judge Application Link/Other Judging Info

Judge Application Link

If you would like to signup to be a judge for our tournament, please fill out the form linked here. We will send an email confirming that you are hired if we need you.


General Info

All judges must have a linked Tabroom account which will be used to send ballots out throughout the tournament. 

Judges should report to their rounds a 15 minutes before the round is set to begin. If you are not in your room when it is checked, you may be removed from the round and your school fined. If you are assigned rounds back to back, we will give you time to use the restroom/grab food/etc., but please try to start your rounds as close to on time as possible.


School Judges

All speech/extemp judges are expected to be available for the duration of the tournament.

All debate judges are expected to be available for one round past your last entries elimination in the corresponding event.


Judge Training
