Welcome to My New Judge Training Page!
It turns out I got further with this project than I expected. Below you will find the outline from my presentation from our parent judge training. If I can upload the recordings from that training session, I will put them right below my notes.
The next several links are to a judge training guide put out by the National Speech and Debate Association and to sample ballots, both blank and filled in. Most of the time, when we use paper ballots, they do not look quite like these, but looking at them will give judges a sense of how to fill out a ballot. I will try to add some Tabroom.com generated ballots later.
We all got lucky...I figured out how to put YouTube Videos actually on my Website. There is one featuring an LD Round at NSDA Nationals and one featuring a PF Round at the Harvard Round Robin. The kids in these videos are VERY GOOD at what they do. Many of the people you will see will be no where near this level. Below each debate are sample ballots for that debate written by LHS LDers and PFers.
