Montrey County seeks judges for speech and debate tournaments

The Migrant Education Program of the Monterey County Office of Education is seeking volunteers to serve as judges for two upcoming speech and debate tournaments.

Volunteers do not need to have previous experience in speech and debate. Bilingual skills are helpful, although not mandatory.

Judges must commit to attending one of two scheduled training sessions:

March 12 (5:30 pm – 8:30 pm)
March 16 (5:30 pm – 8:30 pm)

Both training sessions will be held at the Monterey County Office of Education, 901 Blanco Circle, Salinas.

The tournaments will be held:

March 21 (8:00 am – 5:00 pm) Regional Tournament at Salinas High School
May 16 (8:00 am – 5:00 pm) State Tournament at Monterey High School

The tournaments give students a opportunity to practice the skills they've learned in the classroom and grow from them. Students research topics and practice after school to prepare. 

Anyone interested in serving as a judge should contact Summer Prather-Smith at (831) 206-4448 or Robin Cohen at (831) 261-9694.
