Judges wanted for upcoming speech competition

The Del Mar College Vocal Vikings will host Speech on the Beach Feb. 14-16 and the group is looking for judges.

According to Sarah Contreras, professor of speech and director of forensics for Speech on the Beach, some people may not feel qualified to judge.

“I think people are hesitant to judge other people, they feel ‘They’re all so good,’” Contreras said. If they were all good, then they can be put in order in which one is better.”

According Contreras, she has training for those who are interested in becoming a judge, along with handouts on what is expected and what to expect. Contreras is seeking those with a background in education or professional vocation.

Those who are interested in judging contact Contreras at slcontrer@delmar.edu or visit room Room 103D in the Memorial Classroom Building.
