What is Forensics?

Forensics is an extra-curricular activity offered to students in 6th, 7th & 8th grade.The purpose of middle school forensics is to build self-confidence and oral competency by developing and practicing fundamental public speaking skills.

When is the Middle School Forensics Season?

Information meetings are typically held in November/December.  Coaching typically begins in early January and competitions take place in February and March.

How Does Forensics Work?

With the help of their coach, team members prepare an oral presentation from one of eighteen different categories including Prose, Poetry, Storytelling, News Reporting, Solo Acting and Group Acting, Group Improvisation, and Demonstration.  These selections are then performed at scheduled tournaments and festivals where students are evaluated according to individual category standards.Students then choose a category and begin the search for an appropriate selection to be used in competition during the tournament season.

When Does Competition Begin?

Competitions are hosted by MLFA schools during the weekends from late January through early March. The State MLFA  Tournament takes place in mid-March.  Since forensics is primarily an individual or small-group activity, students may attend as many competitions as they would like.

    Subscribe to the website for any new postings. It’s a great way to check out the most recent changes! For example, I just discovered the addition of a Judge Training page! Coaches posted their information in a comment section of the website and a site administrator placed it in one place for all to see it!
