USC IV judges payment.

USC is pleased to announce a two-day BP debate tournament held at the University of Southern California. We are located right next to downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood, which has high-quality bars, restaurants, and entertainment. We will have high-quality adjudicators, very warm Los Angeles weather, an award-winning CA team, and an efficient, on time tournament.

Our CA team will be Drew Latimer and Camara Hudson.

He was the CA at the 2017 Brandeis IV. He currently coaches at UCLA. Camara was part of the top breaking team for the 2016 Cambridge IV, the champion of the Rochester IV and multiple other small tournaments, and breaking team from Harthouse, Cambridge Womens, and other tournaments. She has served as a CA for the 2017 Brandeis IV, 2016 Huber Debates and the 2015 Bard IV. Matthew Schaupp will be running tab.
