Register to Judge

Thank you for your interest in participating as a citizen judge in the Coolidge Cup. Without you, we could not have this event! The 2021 Coolidge Cup will consist of two separate competitions, declamation and debate, with different students competing in each. No experience in speech, debate, or judging is necessary in order to serve as a judge. We will provide you with materials to read over in advance, and there will be a judge training session. Details will be shared with you when you register.

To register, please fill out the form below. You may sign up for as many or as few rounds as you would like to judge. Judges are also invited to listen to the various speakers we have scheduled and partake in meals throughout the tournament.

If you have any questions, contact Debate Director Jared Rhoads (

Registration to judge the 2021 Coolidge Cup will open in the spring. Please check back then.
