General Judge Information

Judges make Speech and Debate competitions possible for the young men and women of CCA. Without your dedication and time, these opportunities will cease to enrich the character and skills of our communities' future leaders.

Everyone, 18 years of age or older and/or a high school graduate, is welcome to become a tournament judge, no debate or speech experience is necessary. CCA appreciates your interest in our activities and we hope that you’ll find it an amazing and rewarding experience.
