The world of high school forensics is exciting, challenging, and rewarding. There may be no other co-curricular activity that can do more to build poise, confidence, and strong self-esteem. Forensics offers immediate rewards, such as ribbons, medals, and trophies. In addition each participant will receive a lifetime of rewards—just ask any alumnus of the program.
