If you have never tried competitive forensics, you need to see it to believe it!


This is the "other forensics", searching for the truth with words and ideas rather than scientific instruments. There is something for anyone who wishes to improve themselves and add lifelong skills. Speech and debate experience is proven to enhance your college and career experiences later in life too. Forensics provide a path to future leadership and National Speech and Debate Association membership provides an honor society with decades of solid credibility that is great on a college application or resume. Why wouldn't you try it? "Google it" to find videos and alumni testimony. Here are a few:
Here's an overview of debate from and a league in Texas
