The award-winning Lafayette Speech and Debate team (also known as Forensics) is hosting our annual tournament on campus Oct. 14-15. Your help is needed!

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. Don’t worry if you have ZERO experience. The team will provide training.

Each round is a little over an hour. The team really appreciates anyone who is able to judge two or three rounds … or even the day.

If you have questions or would like to sign up to judge, please contact Scott Placke at
