Open to students in 6th - 8th grade, forensics builds self-confidence and oral competency by developing and practicing fundamental public speaking skills in a fun, creative way!


With the help of their coach, team members prepare an oral presentation from one of seventeen different categories including Prose, Poetry, Storytelling, NewsReporting, Solo Acting and Group Acting, and Demonstration. These selections are then performed at scheduled tournaments and festivals where students are evaluated according to individual category standards.

We compete in about 4-5 meets a season. Students/Groups earn an individual score. With a qualifying seasonal score you can even attend a state competition! Students/Groups with the highest overall scores can earn medals and/or trophies. Schools whose team has the highest overall score also can earn a trophy. 

In 2017, St. Mary took 4th grade at the Elmwood Chess Tournament and earned a trophy.  Great job!
