Volunteer Opportunity

The National Christian Forensics and Communication Association has a national qualifying tournament at Carson Newman College set for March 9-11. I was asked to serve as a judge, but I will be at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Memphis over that weekend. However, I thought that I would post this excellent service opportunity for any other readers that might be interested. Sessions are all day throughout Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so even if you can only assist for 3-4 hours, they could use you. Anyone who is interested can either leave their information in the Comments section or e-mail Bill and Kathy Waldrep at


Dear Friends,

On March 9, 10 and 11, the National Christian Forensics and Communication Association (NCFCA) is holding a National Qualifying Tournament at Carson Newman College. I am asking you if you would be willing to be a Community Judge.

This is an annual event geared toward providing a means for homeschooled students to learn and exercise oratorical skills, addressing life issues by providing opportunities for students to utilize a variety of skills in their communication efforts, including verbal skills, logic, critical thinking, research and study, emotion, and non-verbal skills.

We ask (plead with) members of the community to volunteer their time to evaluate the speeches (or debates) and provide written feedback. A brief judge's orientation is provided and there is a hospitality room. Attached is the philosophy of judging and the schedule for the tournament.

I am sure that these young people would greatly appreciate your insight into their presentation skills and how they can improve on them and succeed at the next level in a national contest.
