In the words of one of our previous judges:
"Everything about this competition was done professionally. I appreciated the fact that time was given to explain how the judging was to be done. I was totally blown away by the level of kids I was judging. The participants all presented their speeches and debates with passion and knowledge...I would encourage all my fellow Kiwanians, Rotarians, Lions, and JA volunteers to join me...Next year I will not only come on my day off but I will take two personal days to do this event."
