Community Judges

NOTE: If you are judging on Tuesday afternoon and evening, please go to the High School.
If you are judging on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, please go to the ARC (white garlic looking building) on the main campus.
It is easiest to access these areas of the campus from the off ramp on Pelandale.
Please see Judge Orientation start times listed below.

Thank you so much for volunteering to judge at the Heart of the Valley Speech and Debate tournament. We so appreciate your willingness to give of your time and wisdom to come and judge our speech and debate students.

Please register as a judge by using the Judge Registration tab above.

No prior experience is necessary. We want our students to be able to communicate with, and persuade all types of audiences. That is why we so appreciate the variety of judges that come from our wonderful Modesto community.

Before you judge, we will give you an orientation so that you know what to expect and how to judge.

Thank you again! This tournament couldn't happen without wonderful volunteers such as you.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Contact
