1st and 2nd Year National Championships at Woodward Academy

2020 — College Park, GA/US

Student Judge Awards

Special awards will again be presented at this year’s awards ceremony to honor the best student-judges at the tournament. Recipients will be determined by our tab room staff based on the following criteria: responsibility (starting rounds on-time, protecting classroom spaces, professional conduct, etc.), ballot writing (appropriate balance of completeness and brevity, balance of positive comments and constructive criticism, etc.), and feedback from others. Students and coaches are encouraged to highlight the good work of student-judges to our tab staff either in-person or on Twitter (@woodwarddebate). Positive feedback from students about judges that voted against them will be especially persuasive. Recipients will receive a framed certificate and will be recognized at our awards ceremony.
