Welcome Community Judges

No experience necessary!

Yes, you are qualified!

We are so pleased that you are interested in judging our students.
Judges are a vital part of this or any tournament, and we can't thank you enough for volunteering! The students appreciate your written feedback on their performance. It is a significant part of their learning experience and growth, and your investment is greatly appreciated!

What we need from you

We need a 3-hour commitment from you for judge orientation/training, judging a round, and completing ballots. Please sign up for an event time which fits your schedule.

To thank you for your time, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be prepared fresh for judges throughout the day. Fresh coffee will be brewing all day, along with teas and ice water.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the Judge Registration and planning to stay for the duration of your commitment. If, for some reason, you are unable to fulfill your commitment, please cancel your registration.

Help us get the word out! Tell your friends and family!
