December 8th, 2021 Rupert's Land Persuasive Speech Event Judge Registration
Judging for the persuasive speech category will occur on Wednesday, December 8th. Judges will be invited to join a live Zoom call from 5:30 PM to 9:15 PM.
Prior to the live event, judges will receive an email that includes a personalized judge code (like a competitor code), a briefing video, a description of the event, an explanation of the scoring range, as well as a link to the judging ballot.
On December 8th, the judge will log into the Zoom meeting, rename themselves based on information that will be distributed closer to the event, and view 2 separate rounds of speeches with approximately 4 speeches in each round. At the completion of each round, judges will be able to confer for 5 minutes before submitting a separate ballot for each competition. This information will be repeated in the briefing video for the judges. Ballots will needs to be submitted by 9:15 PM on December 8th.
The entire process of viewing the briefing video, watching the two live rounds of persuasive speeches, and submitting ballots will require approximately 4.5 hours of your volunteer time.
It is essential that the judge has access to a stable internet and the Zoom application to complete this volunteer opportunity.
If you have any specific questions about what is required of the judges, please email the tournament convenor, Carissa Balcaen, at
. Please note that all instructions will be re-shared in greater detail with necessary links in a future email during the first week of December.
Thank you for sharing your time and supporting the development of our future leaders.
