2023 CCA @ Cedarville University
Dates: 5/12/2023 - 5/13/2023

Judge Requirements


Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio

May 12 & 13, 2023


Minimum Judge Requirements:

Debate: Register one judge per team*


Speech Events (IE): Register one judge per student (maximum two per family)*


If you have more than one student, both parents should be at the tournament and available to judge all day both days. If both parents cannot come, bring an alumni, adult friend, or family member to be your 2nd family judge. Enter them as a guest judge with a note that they are filling your judge requirement.

We prefer that all parents that are present are registered for judging, even if you only have one student. Your input is valuable.

* Each family in hosting clubs should register at least 2 guest judges. If you are working a job that keeps you from being available to judge, you should recruit more guest judges.


Parent Judges:


   All parents who will be at the tournament must register on the Tournament Student Registration Judges Tab. Parent judge registrations must be completed before the tournament registration close date of April 20, 2023 

   Parents are expected to be available to judge the entire tournament. If this is not possible, then additional Guest Judges must be recruited to cover this need.

   To fulfill your judge requirements, first register both parents as judges and then recruit Guest Judges. Alumni are added under the Guest Judge tab, not in the parent judge section.

   If a parent is committed to serve as tournament staff in a non-judging capacity, please still register as a judge if your job is not the entire tournament.  Please put your staff commitment in the notes field.  This helps us know that you are still meeting your judging requirements.

   If you do have a job for the whole tournament and will not be available for judging, you must replace yourself with guest judges. Be sure your guest judge puts your name in the recruited by field so we can keep track.


 Guest Judges:


   Guest Judges are anyone other than a parent.  Other family members and Alumni are considered Guest Judges.

   Please access the Guest Judges registration link to register anyone other than parents.  

   Alumni - Please put in the notes section the club with which you competed, the year you graduated, and any relatives still involved (especially if last names are different.)

   Guest Judge registrations are open through 7:00 p.m., Monday May 8, 2023.


For all parent and guest judge registrations, complete information must be submitted:


         Full Name

         Complete Address


         Phone number

         Restrictions (Parents need not list your own children, please list those for whom you have directly been the primary coach, or those whom you cannot judge without bias - we do not block whole clubs)

         Biographical information (parents too, used for Debate Judge Bios postings and to help for assigning ballots)

         For Guest Judgesthe name of the CCA family who recruited you should be listed in the Recruited by field.
