The NSDA is looking for adults to hire to serve as judges for the Springboard Series scrimmages! For weekday, after-school scrimmages, payment is $20 per round judged. Each judge that is hired for a scrimmage will be guaranteed payment of $20 for their time, even if they are not called to judge a round. Hired judges are expected to be available for the entire round on the scrimmage date.
The Springboard Series is dedicated to helping students grow as speech and debate competitors and community members. Judges must be committed to providing constructive, culturally competent feedback and decisions that meet students where they are in order to create safe spaces, healthy competition, and encourage their growth in our activities.
