On Wednesday, September 19th at 7:00pm, Postville will be hosting Speech Judges Certification in the Fine Arts Center in the high school.

Certification will take less than 90 minutes and costs $5. Judges get paid $110 per contest day.

For those unfamiliar, here is the "job description" for judging: Judges are assigned to a particular category (acting, musical theatre, short film, poetry, etc) They evaluate each performer or group and assign a rating. Judges are given criteria, based on each category, to assign ratings. Judges are asked to critique each performance honestly and fairly, while still highlighting positive aspects and giving advice on how to improve in the future. In some cases, judges might be asked to work in the tab room and help record contest results.

Judges are always in demand and this is a great way to get involved in Large Group and Individual contests and get paid for it!
