Julia Burke Award Nomination Deadline Thursday, April 15

Recommended Posts


The Julia Burke Award recognizes the high school policy debater who most closely upholds the combination of characteristics that Julia displayed in her love for the activity. These qualities include excellence in and passion for debate, a commitment to helping others, love and respect for the policy debate community and dedication to maintaining friendships despite the pressures of competition. Julia was lost October 30, 1998 following an automobile accident. At Julia’s service, Ryan Mills, her debate coach, said it well: “It suddenly became so obvious to me that she was the one who had it right all along. The importance of people, not things; your integrity, not your successes; your contributions, not your awards.”


Any policy debater who is eligible, or expected to be eligible, to compete in the TOC may be nominated for the award. Policy debaters, coaches and judges are invited to nominate one individual per person by April 15th . Nominations should include the name and school of the nominee, the reasons for the nomination preferably including examples and anecdotes, and the identity of the person submitting the nomination including his/her name, affiliation with the debate community (debater, coach or judge), and school affiliation.
