Judge Spanish Debate! No Prior Experience Needed

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a nonprofit of Augsburg University. We provide debate programming to over 750 students in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, including our nearly 100 Spanish Debate League students.

We’re looking for debate judges for 3 tournaments this spring:

Wednesday April 19th – 3:30 to 7:30 PM
Wednesday May 3rd – 3:30 to 7:30 PM
Wednesday May 16th – 3:30 to 7:30 PM

Judges will observe rounds conducted completely in Spanish, determine winners for each round, and provide comments to help students improve their reading, critical thinking and Spanish language skills.

Participation in debate helps students improve their academic skills, including reading comprehension and critical thinking, and increases their confidence. Be a part of creating these outcomes for our Spanish Debate League students!
