Debate Adjudication

If you are teaching your own debating program in your classroom, the value of utilising trained debate adjudicators really can't be underestimated. Not only do professional adjudicators help take the stress out of running a debate event, but both parents and students benefit from feedback that is age-appropriate, supportive, and inclusive. Rise & Shine debate adjudicators are trained in the Rise & Shine Adjudication Method which rewards all students based on their team's skill level. 

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain
a thought without accepting it."

- Aristotle
