The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, is seeking fluent Spanish speakers to serve as debate judges for our upcoming Spanish Debate League tournaments. These tournaments help middle and high school students build their Spanish fluency as well as public speaking skills, self confidence, and critical thinking. The topic this year involves Puerto Rico becoming a US State.
We will pay judges $55 per tournament. No debate experience is required, but Spanish fluency is. All judges will receive training. Judges are asked to listen to students speak, choose a winner, and provide written and verbal feedback at the end of the round.
Tournaments will take place in person, at locations in the Twin Cities Metro, on Thursday evenings throughout late March, April, and May:
High School Tournaments:
• March 30
• April 20
• May 4
Middle School Tournaments:
• April 13
• April 27
• May 11
The tournaments will start at 4 and end at 7ish. Judges are not obligated to stay for awards. The tournaments will involve two rounds.
