Make A Difference for Middle Schoolers! Judge Virtual Criminal Justice Reform Debates This Spring

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide debate programming to middle & high school students in the Twin Cities. We are still providing middle school debate tournaments during COVID-19 pandemic – virtually! We need volunteers to make it happen.

You can judge tournaments from home. No experience required. Sign up today!

This year, middle school debate tournaments will be split into separate dates for rookie & novice (for new debaters) and JV & varsity (experienced debaters) divisions. You are welcome to judge either division, but if you’ve never debated before, it may be helpful to try a Rookie & Novice tournament first. No experience is needed to judge! We will train you virtually.

Volunteer Schedule:

January 28 (Thursday) – Rookie & Novice
February 5 (Thursday) – JV & Varsity
Feb 17 (Wednesday) – Rookie & Novice
Feb 24 (Wednesday) – JV & Varsity
Mar 9 (Tuesday) – Rookie & Novice
Mar 16 (Tuesday) – JV & Varsity
March 25 (Tuesday) – All Divisions (Championship)

Tournaments will generally begin at 3:30 PM.

Thank you for continuing to be part of the MNUDL community. We hope to see you at upcoming tournaments! See which tournament dates work with your schedule & sign up today.
