Thank you for your interest in volunteering as a debate judge in the Coolidge Debate League at the Luddy Schools. Judges are absolutely critical to the success of our debate tournaments. We welcome citizen judges of all types, including teachers, coaches, parents, and other members of the community. Experience with debating or judging is not necessary, as we will hold a brief judge training session on the morning of the tournament.
If you have judged with us before, or if you have already completed a background check because you teach at one of the Luddy schools, then you may skip directly to the registration form at the bottom of the page.
If you have never judged for us before, then we request that you complete a background check before your fill out the registration form at the bottom of the page.
