Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 15
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I feel it is important for both teams to use quality information regarding their stance on alternative energy. I will be unbias and will only be persuaded by evidence that is proven. Communication skills will be equally as important as substantive issues because haven been a CX debater I realize how important it is to be able to convey the message. The affirmative team will have the burden of proof and it will be up to the negative team to disprove them.


Rounds judged: 9
