Forensics is a competition between individuals or teams that requires students to do public speaking. Students find pieces of literature they are interested in and present it. Being able to give a speech in front of an audience helps with leadership, responsibility, and speaking skills. Becoming comfortable with public speaking in high school gives students a jump start on these skills.The performance given is based on their interpretation of the piece which is shown through facial expressions, hand gestures, and voice inflections.
Anyone can participate in Forensics. This year’s group is Maddie Korbas, Ashlyn Hooper, Maggie Warrner, Hunter Exferd, Gracie Warrner, Aidan Lowery, Mikey Austin, Jasmine Hanson, Kelly Boor, Sidney Rabe, Alexis Stoffregen, Morgan Mattern, Logan Porter, Kassidy Ashbeck, Jerry LaFond, Angelique Muthig-Raabe, and Kelci Godin.
