CMR is hosting the Electric City Invitational speech and debate tournament December 7-8, 2007 and is in real need of volunteers to judge the tournament. You don’t need any special skills or experience except the willingness to listen to student speeches or debates and choose the ones you feel do the best job. We need 93 judges per round and are having some difficulty filling that need. The rounds of competition are Friday December 7th at 4:00, 6:00, and 8:00 PM, and Saturday December 8th at 8:00, 10:00 AM, 12:00 noon, 1:30 and 3:00 P.M.for speech and debate events. The rounds are approximately an hour and a half, and we will have hot coffee, soda, and snacks for all of the volunteers. Please call Teresa Lang-Court at 231-9379 or email Tom Cubbage ([email protected]) with the time and day you can help.
I’ve judged a few debate tourneys, and it is really a great experience – these are smart kids, and it’s invigorating to see them put their wits and public speaking skills on display.
