Speech Team / Forensics


Speech is a competitive team where 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students learn about different types of speaking and prepare and perform their pieces in competition. Events include Duet Acting, Extemporaneous Speaking, Humorous and Dramatic Interpretation, Declamation, Impromptu, and Poetry Interpretation.

Our team is up and running for the season. We have 70 competitors this year! “Speechies” are busy memorizing pieces and increasing characterization and physicality for the interpretation events and busy writing and projecting confidence in their original oratory pieces.
