The New Zealand Schools Debating Council has now opened applications for the adjudicators for the 2017 National Finals of the Russell McVeagh New Zealand Schools’ Debating Championships.

Nationals this year is from Friday 26 – Monday 29 May in Wellington. We are looking to appoint adjudicators who:

  • are experienced at judging schools’ debates;
  • can deliver articulate oral adjudications;
  • command respect as an adjudicator.

Judges from outside of Wellington will have their flight and accommodation costs covered by the Council.

To apply to judge, please send a short debating and/or adjudication CV to the President of the New Zealand Schools’ Debating Council ([email protected]) by 5pm on Sunday April 2nd.

Appointments will be made sometime the following week by the adjudication core for Nationals which consists of Richard D’Ath, Josh Baxter, Jenna Raeburn and Seb Templeton.
