Halstead High School Forensics

Forensics season has ended with state competition. There are 11 different events students can participate in. All of these categories either have participants acting or giving speeches, most of them requiring pieces to be memorized. Overall, 9 forensics students qualified for state. The team got 10th place out of 47 teams, 4 entries breaking into semifinals and one student getting 6th in their event. The team had an amazing season and everyone at the high school can’t wait to see what they can accomplish next year.

"Forensics is one of the coolest and most beneficial activities you can do in high school hands down."
