The Los Alamos High School Hilltalkers Speech and Debate team needs some assistance. They are in search of people who would like to help judge their tournament on
“Every year since 1962, we hold a speech and debate tournament,” said Los Alamos High School Teacher and Speech and Debate Assistant Coach Margo Batha. “This year it’s at the middle school because there’s no room for the speakers and debaters here.”
Registration for the tournament will take place from 2:30-5 p.m.
Nov. 12 and the awards will be handed out on Nov. 13.
200 debaters and speakers from across New Mexico will compete in dramatic interpretive and public speaking events.
“We welcome judges,” Batha said. “We need as many as we can get.” She said they have approximately
35 people signed up to judge, but more are needed to fill the 300 judging hours that will take place during the tournament. She also said that there is no minimum number of judging hours required to be a judge, those interested can stay for as long as they want.
The Hilltalkers have been honing their skills for a while now. On
Oct. 12-13, they competed at the East Mountain High School Tournament in Albuquerque and placed second in the Lincoln Douglas debate portion of the tourney.
