“Truly it was my pleasure serving as a community judge. I am amazed at these students commitment to these tasks of learning, analyzing, memorizing and dramatizing. Congratulations to every student participating!”
"I really enjoyed the opportunity to judge a session of humorous presentations. Judges do **not need to have personal experience with giving speeches. I followed the written instructions on how to judge each presenter, and appreciated the chance to add my personal comments. I would gladly participate as a judge again!" ~ Barbara Z
"When I was first asked to be a judge for this event, I was expecting a typical middle school to high school style "assembly" or "parents' night". In other words, I expected boring, stumbling attempts at speech and debate. I was very surprised at the level of preparedness and the talent of the people involved. I was very entertained, and I look forward to judging each year." ~ Melissa R.
“I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the students. My wife and 15 year old daughter came for the last debate and were amazed. Congratulations on having such a well-run program and so many enthusiastic and well-rounded participants. “
"As always, it was a delight! I thoroughly enjoy listening to these students and having the chance to encourage and hopefully help them too. Every adult I’ve met through NCFCA is so gracious, appreciative, and kind. The huge sacrifice of time and effort that all the parents give to make it a wonderfully valuable experience for everyone is inspiring. These kids must know they’re loved! " -
