Resources for Judges

Judge Training

Interested in judging high school or middle school debates for the Milwaukee Debate League? We will provide the tools and confidence you need to start judging at MDL debate tournaments. Whether you’re judging for the first time or coming back from a long absence from the activity, we welcome judges of all stripes in the Milwaukee Debate League.

Every debate round needs a judge — someone to adjudicate and evaluate arguments, listen to students and enhance the educational value of each debate.

Simply stated, debate tournaments cannot happen without a dedicated judge pool (and did we mention it’s fun?).

Contact us to become part of the MDL judging pool.


Already a judge? Below, you’ll find some resources to help you get started or refresh your memory.
