Forensics is more than just talk. It is actually several forms of public speaking, including Prose or Poetry reading, Radio Broadcasting, Duo Interpretation, as well as Storytelling, Original Oratory, Extemporaneous and impromptu speaking, Dou Improvisation, and Dramatic Interpretation. These are presented in competition at high school invitationals as well as in the district, region, and across the state. Tournaments are on Saturdays and we will be traveling to different high schools around the area to compete. We may also go to the elementary schools to share our presentations with the younger students. Some of the team members may participate in local speech contests as well. We will also perform at the Fine Arts Festival and other school assemblies.
While participating on the Forensics team you will develop your speaking and acting skills, gain self-confidence and poise, learn how to express your ideas clearly and convincingly, and understand the meaning of commitment-to yourself and to the team.
Forensics is challenging and exciting. It's exhausting and exhilarating. It can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your high school career.
