Judge's Training


Contests are important and having them judged correctly is very important. This link will start a PowerPoint presentation used by Sandy Kardis, Jason Finks, and Curtis Scroggins at their recent training session for judges. It is short and very informative. This should be required viewing for all Toastmaster judges.

  Also listed is a "When You're the Judge" video training from TI.
