Become a Judge!

Join our speech and debate community by becoming a judge for our team! Judging is fun and you get to travel with your student to tournaments, meet other parents, and judge students from around North and South Carolina at speech and debate tournaments.

The idea of judging students can seem intimidating, but we offer multiple training sessions and parent buddy/mentor for new judges who request it.

Bring a laptop and any questions you have to the training session.
