Be a Volunteer Judge for High School Debate!
Looking for a volunteer opportunity that’s both fun and intellectually
engaging? The Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation is seeking citizen
debate judges for our upcoming high school speech and debate tournament in
beautiful Plymouth, VT. Join us!
Our 6th annual Coolidge Cup speech and debate tournament will take place on
July 2-4. There will be speech and debate rounds to judge each day. Sign up
for a half day, a full day, or multiple days–whichever you prefer. Lunch
is provided to all judges as a thank you for your time.

No experience is necessary in either debating or judging. Indeed, we take
pride in using non-specialist “citizen judges” for our tournaments. Anyone
can do this! We will provide you with all the training you’ll need in order
