The WSU Service Award is open to any senior students who judge debates in the Wellington Intercollegiate Debating Competition and tournaments. Judging debates improves debating skills as it gives the debater a different perspective on how to win a debate and what an adjudicator looks for.
This award recognises those students who are committed to debating and who volunteer their time judging debates in a given year. There are three levels of award:
- Gold Award for judging five debates
- Silver Award for judging four debates
- Bronze Award for judging three debates.
To qualify for an award, students should download the following form and take it along to each debate they judge, fill in the details, and have both the coaches sign it. When they’ve judged as many as they are going to, they then photograph or scan the form and email to Julia Wells, President, WSU at
[email protected] by 1 August 2017.
The awards will be presented at the grade finals.
