We are practicing during the rest of December for the big January events!
Thank you, Parents for your volunteer judging. We cannot compete without your judging support. Many of you reported that you enjoyed the experience overall. I love judging the events. It is a great experience to watch how well the students perform!

January 17 Sat. Speech/ Public Forum/Congress WACFL 4 Eleanor Roosevelt
January 24 Sat. Lincoln-Douglas/Policy WACFL 4 Rock Ridge
January 31 Sat. All Events Broad Run Invitational
Parents: Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform me as to which event you are judging. I will send you video links and pdf guides to judging your event.
Students need to be present for 8 AM, dressed in professional clothing, that is a suit and tie for the young men and professional, modest attire for the ladies, including nearly knee-length skirts and hose, plus a jacket or sweater over the blouse. Hair needs to be very neat for men and women.
We are very excited, and happy to be taking such a large group of varsity, j.v., and novices! The competition so strengthens the students!
Students may bring their own food, or they may purchase. Typical food includes: pizza, soda, donuts, and other things not good for heath. Students may bring their food. It is a long, exciting day. Plan accordingly.
Great breakfast and lunch is also provided for parents who judge. Breakfast, lunch, good coffee and juices are served!
Parents WHO JUDGE EVENTS, you will not be judging your own youth. Yet, when the day is done, having judged, you will be so proud of your own youth for their speech and debate course and training!
Parents who judge may leave earlier with their youth, perhaps as early as 6pm
Parents, we want to thank you for your continued support!
