Julia Burke Nomination reminder
« on: February 05, 2015, 08:08:32 PM »
The deadline for Julia Burke Award nominations is approaching!  Debaters, coaches, and judges are invited to nominate by Monday, February 23, 2015.

Any student who has debated in an ADA tournament may be nominated for the award (ADA tournaments this year included: Georgia State, Kentucky, JMU/LBS, Mary Washington, Samford, Liberty, Miami, Navy, Indiana, the D7 JV/Novice side tournament, and ADA Nationals). 

Nominations should include the name and school of the nominee, the reasons for  the nomination, preferably including examples and anecdotes, and the identity of the person submitting the nomination including his/her name, affiliation with the debate community (debater, coach or judge), and school affiliation.  We also need a photograph of the nominee. The nomination may be submitted online at
(Click on the ADA Nomination tab)

or sent directly to:

Joy Johnson, Executive Director

The finalists will be determined by The Julia Burke Award Committee, American Debate Association Coaches and a representative of The Julia Burke Foundation Policy debaters attending the ADA National Tournament and their coaches (one coach per school) will determine the award recipient by majority vote.  Ballots will be distributed at the ADA Nationals registration.
