JUDGE UPDATE FOR NOVICE NIGHT: After consulting with other head coaches, we have decided to allow seniors to judge the novice division on Friday night. This is a common trend in debate, and we recognize how hard it is to find judges right after school. Here is what we are asking:

·Senior Judges must be in their THIRD or FOURTH year of competition

·Senior judges must act appropriately while judging and after rounds (not sharing ranks, being respectful to the younger competitors, writing developed critiqued sheets, being positive and encouraging, etc.)

·Senior judges MUST attend the judges meeting on Friday; failure to do so will result in a team being charged for a missing judge
