Welcome to DHS Forensics

  • Forensics is co-curricular course which operates as a competitive speech team. Similar to track & field, Forensics students choose from a variety of speech and drama events to prepare and take to competitions at area schools during the weekend. Events include persuasive and informative speaking, individual and duet acting, extemporaneous speaking, and debate activities. Our regular season runs from January through April and culminates in the KSHSAA State Forensics Tournament alongside additional opportunities to qualify for the NSDA and NCFL national tournaments in the summer.
