Judge Requirement: During the registration process, each student will be required to submit the name of a parent judge who will be present for the entire tournament. A successful tournament is absolutely dependent on parent participation as speech and/or debate judges, but we can handle a limited number of students without a designated parent judge due to the support of the other parents. If a parent is unable to fulfill this duty, please contact the tournament director Wendy Routhier to explain the circumstances and ask for permission to register without a designated judge. You will be given a code to enter during this step of the process. (This exception will be given only to a limited number of students, first come, first served.) Parents, once your name is listed on the student registration, you do not need to complete an additional judge registration.

Rules: Be sure to review all applicable rules at
