Forensics – Students prepare events for participation in speech and drama contests. Students may participate in interpretation and speaking events. Events include student congress, public forum debate, Lincoln-Douglas debate, extemporaneous speaking, original oratory, informative speaking, humorous interpretation, dramatic interpretation, and duo interpretation. Students learn speaking, organization, and acting skills. Students are required to attend 10 after school practices and attend 3 tournaments on the weekend. Students must meet KSHSAA eligibility requirements. Students will also be required to provide judges for and help run any tournaments that we host during the semester.
