Event Description:
For immediate release November 1, 2018 Contact: Kimberly Wieberg Phone: 281-773-6054 Email: RE: Community Volunteers Requested For Local Speech & Debate Tournament Blinn College in Brenham will once again host the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) All-Region Speech and Debate tournament January 8-10, 2019. This tournament will provide competition for over 300 high school students from across Texas and Oklahoma in both Lincoln Douglas and Team Policy debate, as well as various prepared and limited preparation speech events. Over 200 community volunteers are needed throughout the three day event to evaluate the students. NCFCA students rely on the judges from all walks of life to provide valuable feedback for improvement, growth, and encouragement. No previous experience in either speech or debate is necessary to judge. Judging each round is a three hour commitment which includes a 30 minute judge orientation, the actual round, and time to fill out the ballot with feedback. Volunteers may judge as little as one round on one day or as many as several rounds over all three days. Complimentary snacks, and beverages will be provided. The first debate round orientation begins at 7:15 a.m. each day and the first speech round orientation begins at 9:15 a.m. each day. Rounds continue throughout the day with the last round beginning at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday rounds will be those students who have advanced from the preliminary events the previous two days. The judges can be assured they will be impressed with the caliber of speeches and debates heard. The most common feedback from community judges after they have completed judging is they feel hopeful for our country’s future hearing youth who express themselves so clearly and eloquently.
