Applications open to adjudicate at WSDC

The New Zealand Schools’ Debating Council is opening applications to adjudicate for New Zealand at this year’s WSDC.

The tournament this year will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka between 23 July – 2 August 2019.

The cost to attend the tournament this year will be approximately:
• $1,000 for registration which covers accommodation, transportation, attendance at Worlds social events and most meals;
• $1,300 for flights to Sri Lanka from New Zealand.

Council has a pool of funds available for subsidies for successful applicants to assist with the costs of attending the tournament.

To apply to judge, please email [email protected] by 5pm on Friday 1st March with:
• A short debating / judging CV;
• A short explanation for why you would be a good adjudicator for New Zealand;
• Whether you intend to attend Nationals this year and in what capacity (e.g. coach or judge); • The minimum subsidy you would require to attend the tournament.

Council will then make offers for places / subsidies for judges the week after applications close.
