Judging qualifications:
I competed in policy debate from my sophomore year all the way through my senior year, making it to the state championship all 3 years, and I competed in congressional debate my senior year and was awarded 6th place in the state. I also helped coach the LD debate team my senior year. My knowledge of debate and how arguments work along with my analysis skills shows that I am qualified to judge both CX and LD debate styles, along with extemporaneous debate.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Other (please explain below)
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I am a policy making, tabula rasa, stock issues judge. The main goal in debate is to fulfill your burdens, present evidence supporting your statements, and to persuade me. Tell me why I should vote for you, and why you're right, without being rude or offensive to neither me nor your opponents.
