To avoid bias judgement; this year’s debate will have different category of judges:

1. A Primary judge: judge who does not have experience in debate of any form and is partial to basic and/or slow argument.

2. A Flow judge: a judge who seeks to minimize intervention in the round by judging based solely on the arguments as made by the debaters in the round.

3. A Classical/traditional judge: looks strongly on the ethics of the case and the philosophy that is behind it, especially when it comes to the Value structure.

4. Policy judges: looks at all forms of arguments.
