Judging qualifications:
I have competed in speech tournaments in college at District, Region, State, and National levels in the areas of prose/poetry/readers theater. While in college I also judged several high school competitions at district and regional levels in the areas of prose/poetry/L-D debate. Upon graduating college, I judged UIL high school competitions as well in the same areas. The last time I judged was in the 2008-2009 school year for a specific high school. I would really like to get back into judging.

Evidence philosophy:


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Equal
I analyze the information given to see if a logical explanation of issues was given, which debater did the better job of explaining their point. I look at the proof or evidence they presented. Was it sufficient and appropriate to the topic? I decide if the argument was organized. Was it logical in its presentation? Was it easy to follow and was topic reminded. I look at the responses given by the opponent and determine who was better at responding with a logical and effective argument. Were examples given? And the delivery is also taken into account. Was their speech understandable, clear and concise? Did they deliver with seeming conviction for their topic? A clear communication, and well-defined presentation of topic and evidence with support are values I look for. I take notes during debate as to keep track of arguments and resolutions.
