NYCUDL High School State Championship
2018 — WC Bryant, NY/US
Each school MUST provide one judge for every two (2) teams competing.
We will offer judge training for new/inexperienced judges.
Judges must check in on the morning of the tournament on both Saturday and Sunday.
ALL JUDGES ARE REQUIRED TO JUDGE ONE ROUND AFTER YOUR TEAM IS ELIMINATED FROM THE TOURNAMENT.
We expect that all judges will pay attention in the debates they are judging and will work to provide a fair decision based on the arguments presented in the debate.
We also expect judges to behave in a way that is appropriate in a middle/high school environment. Any judges that exhibit behavior inconsistent with this expectation can and will be removed from the tournament by the tournament director at his discretion.
Unless there is a violation of the conduct policy by the judge or the team(s) in the debate, the tab room views the judge’s decision regarding all arguments made in the debate as final. If the tabroom determines that a judge or the team(s) violate a conduct policy expectation, the tabroom may alter the decision in a way that it feels is fairest for the debaters involved.
