Call for Adjudicators | Primary School Debate Open & SRC-IHL 2013

Written by DA(S) Admin on .

Judges are needed for two upcoming tournaments from very different age groups in the debate circuit. They are the Primary School Debate Open and Singapore Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Debate Series 2013.

The tournaments cater to primary school and junior-college levels respectively. Please kindly complete the attached form and email Walter at, by the indicated dates.

This inaugural tournament set up to provide more debate opportunities for primary school students and for younger upper primary school debaters to hone their skills in preparation for the annual Wits & Words tournament. Thus the competition format follows that of Wits & Words, where debates are style weighted and adjudicators are advised to use non-punitive means of assessment. This helps to encourage younger debaters to learn from their mistakes rather than penalizing them. Do drop me an email if you are interested in adjudicating at this tournament but require more information. 
Student-adjudicators from JC-level and below institutions while be awarded CIP hours for their contribution while only break round judges will be presented with vouchers as remuneration. 
Dates: 20 July (9.00AM - 12.15PM), 3 August (9.00AM - 10.30AM) - Preliminary Rounds & 16 August (2.00PM - 4.00PM) - Grand Finals
Venue: MGS (Primary), 11 Blackmore Drive, Singapore 599986
Application Deadline: 17 July 2013, Wednesday
