We Need Debate Judges!

Carroll's High School Debate tournament is Dec 4-5 and is the largest ever! Could you judge a round or two? We offer three types of debate:

  1. Policy debate will discuss domestic surveillance by the Federal Government.
  2. Lincoln Douglas debate will discuss whether juries should be given the power to acquit someone if they believe the law violated was unjust. (It's called "jury nullification.")
  3. Public Forum debate whether standardized testing in K-12 schools is beneficial or harmful.

We need judges at4, 6 & 8pm Fri;8 & 10pm Sat; and1pm Sat (quarterfinals). Ask your teachers about extra credit for this community service - quite a few teachers agreed last year! Sign up online.
