Event coordinators for the ninth annual Speech on the Beach tournament are seeking judges for the event.

The event is a collegiate speech and debate tournament that is an opportunity to help students qualify for national competition. Debate is set for the first day, with speech on the remaining two days.

Having the event on campus makes a big difference, said Mendy Muerer, instructor of speech.

“Our students get to work on their qualifications without having to travel,” Muerer said.

Muerer has been finding judges over social media and email. She has been filling up her list but still needs more.

“I am really excited about the amount of judges we have so far because we still have about a month,” Muerer said.

Sarah Contreras, professor of speech and discipline coordinator, leads up the tournament.

“The best support we can get is from faculty,” Contreras said. “I can guarantee that the faculty members who come and judge will be impressed.”
