Call for Applications: Sponsored Adjudicators
QatarDebate is intending to pay for thirty adjudicators to attend the next World Schools Debating Championships, being held in Qatar on 8 – 19 February 2010.
Sponsored adjudicators will have their tournament registration and return economy airfare paid by QatarDebate; in every other respect, they will participate in the tournament in the same way as all other adjudicators.
Applicants will be chosen both on the basis of (i) proven adjudication record at WSDC and (ii) the need for diversity, particularly geographical and cultural diversity. All applicants must be able to be accepted as an eligible judge of the championship; therefore, applications will not be accepted from anybody who has debated at the 2009 WSDC in Athens. The sponsored positions will be allocated by the two Chief Adjudicators (Chris Erskine and Simon Quinn) in consultation with the Chief Adjudicators’ Panel.
QatarDebate is now calling for applications for these sponsored positions. If you are interested in applying, please e-mail both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide a brief summary of your adjudicating experience and indicate your intended country affiliation at the tournament. Applicants who have not judged at WSDC previously should provide a name and contact information of somebody who has judged at WSDC previously to act as a reference, should it be needed.
The deadline for applications is 1 August; the decision will be made and all applicants notified by 1 September.
