In LD and PF, schools must provide 1 judge for every 2 entries, or fraction thereof. If you have one LDer and one PF team, you owe one judge in each category.
In the Individual Events, each school must provide 1 judge for every 5 entries, or fraction thereof.
It is imperative that judges are entered into the tournament by the deadline. Each coach must certify that their judges have been trained!
Varsity students who have 150 or more NSDA points may also judge and earn service points for doing so. If you are in need of help finding judges, please contact one of the mentor coaches and we will offer you our students to judge for you. Having said that, please note that at most tournaments students are not allowed to judge so please plan to recruit and train adult judges for the future.
Judges are to remain in the judge lounge, even when not scheduled for a round. If we have to reassign ballots, we will be able to do so efficiently. All ballots will be distributed from the media center and returned there.
We will have VIP judge panels for all elimination rounds!
