Volunteers needed for debate competition

Dear Editor:Are you looking for another great opportunity to help serve your community while learning new things about politics, current events, and philosophy? You will have your chance to achieve all of these goals at this year’s Aspen High School Speech & Debate, “Skier Invitational,” on Nov. 13 and 14. We are currently looking for community members willing to serve as volunteer judges in the many and varied events and formats of competition.Students from throughout Colorado will be attending and competing at this event, which is only possible through the efforts and interest of our community. The only requirement is a curiosity as to what is occurring in the world today, interest, support and patience for young people and their ideas and opinions and the willingness to give at least two hours of your time on a Friday evening and/or Saturday morning.We hope that you can join us in celebrating the speech and debate talents of so many Colorado High School students. To volunteer or to find out more about the event, please contact Aspen High School Speech & Debate Coach Chris Wheatley at (970) 925-3760 x1023 or cwheatley@aspenk12.net.Chris WheatleyAspen
