Forensics focuses on the art of communication and public speaking. Whether students give a speech or a performance, forensics has it all. We have seen many students join forensics with very little confidence talking in front of people and leave the program with a new-found self-assurance. Team members compete in sub-district, district, and conference contests. Those who perform well enough will advance to the state competition in Madison. Weekly rehearsals with their coach are required by team members.
