Yale Community Connect & Urban Debate League Judging (New York)

This is an opportunity to judge practice debates and mini tournaments for middle school and high school students who are part of the Debate club in NYC.

If you have prior experience with debate club, public speaking, judging etc, great! If not, no worries – there will be a brief judge training for those without any debate experience. We will help judge the middle school debate from 10am-12pm and the high school debate from 12-3pm.

  • Saturday, May 11, 2019 | 10:00am to 3:00pm

*Let Alison know if you have any prior experience in Model UN, Mock Trial, Toastmasters or other public speaking.
