Sign up to Volunteer as a Judge!

Every month we host FREE online speech and/or debate tournaments for ALL students!  We need volunteer judges!  We need you!   No competitive speech, debate or judging experience is required. We provide judge resources and training.

How does it work? 

1. Complete the Volunteer Form and Expectations!

Please complete the judge form below and our staff will soon be in touch.

2. Wait until the end of the Month to receive your submissions

At the end of each month, students submit their speeches and debate online.

3. Judge the Speeches and Debates! 

Sometime during the first week of the month we'll send you about 10-20 speeches (or let us know how many you prefer) to judge. You have a week to view and judge the 10-20 speeches and send us the results.

4. Celebrate!

We announce the results, winners, videos, photographs, awards and more.

5.... And Repeat!

New Tournaments, New Topics, New Speeches, New Students the next month!
