Want to Volunteer?
Volunteering does not require a debate background. DKC has trained hundreds of people in the KC area to become judges. Training is offered at every DKC tournament and DKC is happy to visit groups interested in on-site training. We also provide online judge training just below.
Jude Code of Conduct
DKC has created a code of conduct for all of our judges that you will find here: Judge.Best.Practice.14

If you would like to judge but need training we have a solution. Below you will find training videos for the two types of debate events found at DKC tournaments. The first is student congress with a link to congress guide below:
Next is the policy debate video training and a link to policy debate guides/ballots is below.
DKC recruits mentors for debate teams through a program called Coaching Connections. Below you will find resources for members of the program.
