Judges need only complete the training one time.
The KHSSL Board of Directors voted to add training for judges against implicit biases as a requirement for all judges at the 2022 Regional and State Speech and Debate Tournaments.
All judges must complete this training prior to the beginning of any of these tournaments. Failure to do so will result in the judges being dropped from the tournaments (and schools paying any Judge Drop fees).
