expect to have a very small pool of hired judges available please attempt to
cover your commitment.

Awards will be presented to all teams reaching the elimination rounds.
Speaker awards will be given on the basis of the number of entries.
Each school is responsible for providing three rounds of judging for every
two debaters in the tournament, or six rounds for every four debaters entered.
As you can imagine the number of hired judges in the Harrisonburg area is
limited so please let us know early if you need to hire judging. Hired judging
is available at a fee of $25.00 per round for team debate. We would rather
have your judges than your money.
We will use mutual preference judging as entries permit. We anticipate at a
minimum being able to use a ranking system (A,B,C).
Because alterations to teams' original entries have the habit of occurring,
we request that you notify Michael Davis as soon as possible. Michael may be
reached at (540) 568-7308. We can also be reached via email at
davismk at jmu.edu.
