LAMDL Tourney Four at South Gate High School Needs Judges

LAMDL LogoThe Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate League (LAMDL) and the South Gate High School debate team are excited to invite you to the fourth tournament of the 2017–2018 competitive season. 

As this tournament approaches, they are looking for volunteer judges, who are interested in coming out to judge two or more debates. They project that more than 450 students from the 21 schools will compete in one or more LAMDL competitions this year, so your help is needed and appreciated more than ever! 

Whether you can judge a couple of rounds or the entire tournament, your time as a volunteer will make it possible for students to participate in this important event. The tournament kicks off on Friday, January 12th and Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at South Gate High School.  

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Cameron Ward or call (323) 787-9153.

Below are the specific details for the tournament on Friday, January 12th and Saturday, January 13th.
