The award-winning Lafayette Speech and Debate team (also known as Forensics) is hosting a tournament on our campus on Oct. 8 – 9.

Judges are necessary to operate the tournament. Each round of student performances is observed and ranked by a judge. The competitors will be involved in events like Drama, Poetry, Impromptu, and Persuasion. Guaranteed: the student performances will be astonishing.

We need your help! Ideally, we would have someone judge two or three rounds, or even the full day (each round is a little over an hour). However, if you are available, a single round would be a huge help too! No one should worry if they do not have any experience. Scott Placke, the team’s director, will provide informational packets and training sessions.

We hope to have our judges signed up by Thurs., Sept. 28. Please contact Scott Placke at
