Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 9
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: Cx is a learning tool for those who choose to use it. I’m here to decide who has learned the most out of their time spent researching. Quality Arguments give an all around depth and let both teams show how hard they worked through out the year.


Rounds judged: 5
Approach: Issues
LD debate is a thinking person's debate, One word can change the debate. I believe in a quality debate that is hard fought and both sides have solid cases. Value is a key point in LD, and the best debaters can make you believe in what there value is.
