Forensics is the competitive art of public speaking. Whether it is an interpretative event or a prepared speech, the activity of forensics helps students develop one of the most important skills of life -
the ability to command the spoken word
Forensics is where, as a student, they can test themselves now against the future mainstream, competing against the future leaders, actors, journalists, attorneys, politicians and speakers.
The activity helps students build a knowledge base, while promoting reading, research, assurance, and conviction. In the end, Forensics not only helps students develop their communication skills, but also their voice --
a voice that can change the world.
