You are invited

Join us in providing valuable feedback for 12 to 18-year-old students who are preparing to influence their world for God’s glory! Judges from all walks of life, with no experience required, are needed to listen to entertaining and inspiring presentations from the league’s speakers and debaters. Students compete in 10 speech categories and 3 debate styles. 

Judges must be at least 18 years old and not be emrolled in high school classes. No experience in either speech or debate is necessary. You are qualified!  

Volunteer commitment

You may judge as little as one round or several rounds. Each round is only a three-hour commitment, which includes a brief judge orientation as well as complimentary refreshments to express our gratitude. 

NCFCA will be glad to validate your community service hours upon request. 

"The staff were kind and welcoming. The competitors were, as usual, respectful and sought to communicate sincerely, honestly, and as well as they could about the resolution that they had been researching. I am always encouraged to see other students benefiting from what I learned so much from."
