Become an Adjudicator

The SADA welcomes any individual who has completed secondary school to apply to become an adjudicator. While a background in debating is useful, the SADA’s comprehensive training and accreditation process ensures that it is not essential. Adjudicators are paid an honorarium of $60 per night. Adjudicating is an excellent way to improve analytical and public speaking skills, meet adjudicators and debaters from across the State and make a valuable contribution to the development of students of all ages.
