I competed in LD, Policy and Public forum my 4 years of high school and competed at both the state level and national level. I have been judging since fall of 2016, at the state and national level. I have also judged finals at NSDA nationals in policy debate last summer.
For email chain: AngelaWinn1997@gmail.com,I will only look at it, if something comes into question or if I want to look at something more clearly.
Policy Debate: If debaters have any questions, please ask! I have judged at nationals 4 times
Clash is extremally important on all sides of the debate. If something was drop in the round I will not vote on it unless it is pointed out in the round. As for things I vote on, it depends on the round and how the debater frame the round. I will vote on pretty much anything as long as the debaters explain clearly what they are arguing and how it links. If you run a K, need to be able to explain it in your own words, as well as links and impacts are important.
I do flow the whole round, so please give off-time road maps, and sign post during your speech for I know where you are on the flow.
For spreading, I am fine with it, as long as you slow down on taglines.

I have been a volunteer judge for 15 years for East High School. In those 15 years I have judged all levels including TFA state and Nationals. In 2022 I had the pleasure of judging P.O.I finals at Nationals. Over the years I have judge everything from debate to i.e events.
Debate: When it comes to debate (CX,LD,PF), I am not a fan super progressive arguments. Linking evidence is important. If you run a K please do it correctly. When it comes to LD and PF, there is no need to spread. In all debates I like to see clash and I take the entire debate into consideration.
Congress: I vote on actively within the chamber. I look at speeches, questions, and how you answer those questions. I also look to see if you have paid attention to what other representatives have said. I like to see engagement within the chamber. Please do not just read your speech, you should at least look up ones in a while. I also expect the P.O to run a smooth organized chamber and know the rules.
Extemp: I want to hear evidence from good sources. I look for original takes on the topics. I do not like kids reading their speech’s. I want to hear their opinions and take on it. Remember, tell me what you are going to tell me, tell me, and then wrap it up in a conclusion.
