MNUDL Students

Make a difference in the life of a young person.

Help diversify the pipeline of future leaders in business, law, and the community at large.

Though the tournament format has changed in response to the current global pandemic, we still need judges! Become a virtual volunteer. To be notified of opportunities – please email:

Be a Judge

We depend on volunteers to judge our high school, middle school, Spanish, and Somali debate tournaments held throughout the Twin Cities.

Judges watch debate rounds and then evaluate teams on arguments, logic and public speaking skills. They are responsible for choosing a winner and providing written feedback on their decisions. No experience is necessary; we provide brief training sessions to go over the basics of policy debate.

Tournament Support

We are looking for a few excellent folks who can help us deliver great debate tournaments for MN Urban Debate League high schoolers this semester, and middle schoolers next semester. No experience is necessary; tournament support staff can be trained on-site.
