Debate judges needed Jan. 20-21 for Webb City tournament


Two hundred judges are needed Jan. 20-21 for Webb City High School’s 58th annual Winter Classic Speech and Debate Tournament. 

“Without support from staff and community members like you, our team would be unable to take advantage of their many opportunities to reach some great achievements, including competition on the national and international level,” says coach Tiffany Bolin. 

“We know your time is valuable and your schedules are already packed full; as a small token of our gratitude, we will offer a hospitality room for our judges, and it looks to be a great selection of food both days of the tournament. Even just one round of judging goes a long way to help make our tournament and our program a success.

The 8 to 10 a.m. time slot on Saturday morning is in the greatest need of judges.

If you are able to judge, complete this form to sign up. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with Tiffany Bolin ( or Nikki Owens (
