VANDERBILT INVITATIONAL DEBATE TOURNAMENT

Judging Information

•   Judges should assign speaker points to each individual speaker and choose a winning team.
•   Please clearly indicate a low point win on the ballot.
•   Oral critiques are great, but please turn in your ballot to the ballot table or a Vanderbilt student runner before giving an oral critique (the ballot table will be in Calhoun, on the second floor).
•   Judges are asked to provide some feedback on the ballot to confirm their decisions.
•   Revealing decisions is discretionary.
•   Judges should contact the ballot table before declaring a forfeit.
•   All judges have a commitment of one round past their squad’s elimination.
•   Time limits are 9-3-6 with 10 minutes prep time.
•   We will use the 2010-2011 CEDA/NDT/ADA resolution.
•   CEDA STATEMENT ON SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION: This tournament abides by the CEDA statement on sexual discrimination and encourages an inclusive atmosphere for all those participating. Insofar as possible, the procedures in the CEDA statement will be followed for complaints based on race, gender, and sexual orientation.
