Register to Judge

Thank you for your interest in participating as a citizen judge for the 2023 Coolidge Cup. Without you, we could not run this program.

Please use the form below to register for the times that you would like to judge. A live judge training session with coffee and pastries will be offered at 9am in the morning of each day of the tournament. We ask all judges to attend a judge training session before judging their first round.

You may select certain rounds using the form below, or you can also leave the boxes blank and offer to be an “as needed” judge by simply showing up to the judges’ lounge about 20-25 minutes before a given round, and we can slot you in if we have a spot. As a judge you are invited to take part in our onsite lunch and/or dinner. If you have any questions, contact Speech and Debate Director Jared Rhoads (

The registration form is now closed, but if you’d still like to judge at the Coolidge Cup, you may go to the judges’ lounge 20 minutes prior to any round and let Jared Rhoads or Ben Voth know that you are available to judge. They might be able to find a spot for you in the next round.
