Branded limited edition merchandise, available only to certified Judges and in limited quantities. Plus a *small* amount of promos included in the various boxes to give judges who didn’t get a chance to attend a conference in a particular wave another way to fill the hole in their collection. This is a test wave for, so we’ll see how it goes, but I really hope we can offer something like this at the end of every wave. If you have ideas for cool merch, please let us know!
The first box has opened for orders! Merchandising Packages for L3 and L3 Emeritus judges have opened: The retail price is set at $400, which includes worldwide shipping!* L3 boxes will initially be limited to 2 per person. Purchases can only be made by Judge Academy Level 3 and L3 Emeritus judges. Only 150 total L3 Merchandise Boxes available. Shipment date expected early to mid-April. Instructions for ordering have been emailed to current L3s/L3Es. If you believe you should have received an email and did not, please let us know!

Tournament organizers are beginning to staff future events, and with physical conference plans returning, please take a moment to verify that your privacy settings are set to your liking/comfort. Due to various data/privacy laws, PRIVACY SETTINGS DEFAULT TO PRIVATE. It’s important to make sure you update your privacy settings by logging in and going to: https://judgeacademy.com/my-account/privacy/.
A note on privacy here – while you always have the right to make any and all data private from other users, please note that having some critical information hidden (your profile, name, level, email, or region/country) will make it much harder to be accepted to events or conferences, or be contacted by potential employers for work and other staffing opportunities.
