Judging qualifications:
All four years of High School I was an affluent CX debater, including advancement to state and victory over several invitation tournaments. I competed in the district meet all four years of high school, advancing to state one of them. I have judged at Angel tournaments for CX as well. In Extemp, I did persuasive speaking the last three years of my high school career, advancing to the regional tournament. I believe that I would be an excellent judge, since I know exactly what to look for, and how to constructively judge a student in order to assist them.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 1
Judging approach: Stock Issues
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quantity of evidence and quality of evidence are of equal importance
Paradigm: I tend to follow the stock issues format of judging, since it seems as if you don't have a case if you don't present them and argue them in some way. However, they are not always critical to a round, and I would be opened to Kritiks and any other arguments, as long as they are explained well and fairly to their opponent and I. The point of debate is to persuade and educate, and I believe that the team that does that best, with plenty of evidence along with common sense, should win a round.


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Communication skills are more important than resolution of substantive issues
The most important part of an LD round is clear explanation, and distinct lines on your stance. I've seen many LD rounds that the two cases run together in many areas, to the point that it seems they are on the same side. I want to be persuaded clearly and efficiently, with excellent real-world examples.
