2019 — Bettendorf, IA/US
We ask that all schools do their best to fulfill their judging requirement. We don’t really have a reservoir of judges to pull from so please do what you can to fulfill your obligation. Please be sure to include all judge restrictions such as school blocks or division restrictions. Schools are required to provide judging up to ONE (1) round past their teams’ final drop. For Speech, this means all judges are obligated through Finals. For Debate, this means all judges are obligated through the first out round in that particular event minimum.
Judging requirements are as follows:
Lincoln-Douglas: 1 judge for every 3 competitors or every part thereof.
Policy: 1 judge for every 2 teams or every part thereof. Judge obligation must be fulfilled.
Public Forum: 1 judge for every 3 teams or every part thereof.
Individual Events: 1 judge for every 6 competitors or every part thereof.
Student Congress: 1 judge for every 8 competitors or every part thereof.
A very limited amount of judges will be available for hire at the following rates:
Policy: $200 – but please do what you can to cover your entry. We don’t really have a lot of access to Policy judges in the QC area anymore…
Public Forum: $150
Individual Events: $150
The last day to hire judges will be Sunday, November 10th, 2019.
