In high school forensics, there are fourteen events in the “speech ” category. These events range from public speaking to acting to limited prep. While several events are similar and follow the same rules, each event has its own guidelines. Navigate to each event to learn the basic rules and some tips and tricks for being successful.
If you’re a peer-coach, read through these tabs to get an idea of each event. Then, head over to the “Peer-Coaching” tab for guidelines on how to practice with other students.
