Bill Teter: Call for Speech & Debate Judges Worldwide

Happy New Year, everyone.

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday season (even if it was a little wet). The spring semester is underway at the Lab School, and for the Hawaii Speech League (HSL) it’s now the season for qualifying for the State Tournament in April. All HSL tournaments will be live online (except for Duo Interpretation, which involves pre-recorded videos).

In addition to the HSL tournaments, we are also entering a national invitational tournament hosted by Seattle University at the end of January. That tournament will be all pre-recorded videos.

As always, any help you can provide by judging at one or more of these tournaments will be greatly appreciated. We need to meet our judging quotas in order to be able to compete. One day we will return to in-person competition and I’ll be able to thank you in person.

Please contact me if you can help at any of these tournaments. My email address is bill_teter@universitylaboratoryschool.org. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.

Mahalo,

Bill Teter
