The MN Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate programming to 1000+ middle and high school students in the Twin Cities. Our students gain crucial skills like reading comprehension, critical thinking, argumentation, and public speaking, all while having fun and building confidence as part of a team. We need your help to make it happen!
We have multiple upcoming opportunities to judge debates IN PERSON in the Twin Cities. The majority of virtual judging opportunities have been filled.
We’re looking for judges for the following dates & locations:
OCTOBER 8: University of Minnesota
OCTOBER 29: Roseville Area High School (wear a Halloween costume!)
NOVEMBER 12: Highland Park
NOVEMBER 19: University of Minnesota
DECEMBER 10: Twin Cities Metro location TBA
No debate experience is required. Will will train you ahead of the tournament. We’re seeking caring adults who want to help students improve their skills. Judges must be able to pass a background check.

This research study (IRB #: 2022-32-03) is designed to compare two different skill-building training programs that may help college students develop adjustment-related skills. You are eligible to participate if you are a current Augsburg undergraduate student.
If you decide to participate, you will be asked to come to our Augsburg Psychology
research laboratory for 4 sessions over the course of one month. The sessions include an initial orientation meeting and three sessions focused on one of two skills-building programs (you will be randomly assigned to one of the two–like a flip of a coin). Both programs involve mini-informational videos as well as experiential activities for you to
complete. We will also have you complete a few personality measures. You will be assigned a peer coach who will work with you as progress through the study and guide you through the study components. Each of the sessions will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Finally, we will check in one last time 3-months after the study is over for a brief online survey.
Participants will receive up to $35 for their participation. $5 for each of the first three sessions, and $10 for both the fourth session and the 3 month follow-up. Alternatively, Augsburg University Psychology students will receive up to $25 and 4 research credits.
To participate, please complete this participant inquiry form: https://tinyurl.com/Skill-Building
