Forensics

This is a graphic that NCIMS has created as our team logo. The graphic reads "4N6", which when said, sounds like "forensics".Forensics involves public speaking competitions.  Students choose to compete in either an interpretive, public speaking, or debate category.  The categories are:

Interpretive

  • Dramatic Interpretation (DI)
  • Duo Interpretation (DUO)*
  • Humorous Interpretation (HI)
  • Storytelling

Public Speaking

  • Extemporaneous Speaking (EXTEMP)
  • Original Oratory (OO)

Debate

  • Public Forum Debate (PF)*

Click here for a full list of category descriptions.

With the exception of Extemp, students will prepare their pieces to perform at competitions.  All interpretive pieces must be memorized.  Students will need to rehearse their piece at home daily and be prepared to present it in front of the coaches and team members during practice for constructive feedback.

There are four regular tournaments held throughout the school year (see schedule below), with only five entrants in each event at a tournament.  If there are more than five entrants in an event, try-outs will be held to determine which students will compete in the upcoming tournament.  *Duo Interpretation and Public Forum Debate compete in pairs.  Once registration for a tournament is submitted, the list of competitors cannot be changed. Therefore, it is imperative that a student participates if (s)he is selected.

First and Second Place winners from the county tournament will be invited to Forensics Onstage.  Students placing well at the tournaments throughout the year may qualify to compete at the Regional and State level competitions.
