Antigo High School’s students are extremely pumped for this year’s Forensics competitions. In an interview with Aimee Hein, the head of AHS Forensics, stated that “the interest shown this year is amazing. It looks like we will have a maxed out/full team this year. The maximum entries allowed per school is 25.” She has high expectations that all the competitors will advance to state.
For those who may not understand much about Forensics, Hein explains that “Forensics is a public speaking activity that builds verbal and nonverbal communication skills. It’s important to be in Forensics because everyone needs to communicate. This builds those skills. Further, public speaking is one of the most common fears; this is a way to conquer that. Lastly, forensics looks great on college applications.”
If any student is interested in joining this fun group of people, contact Ms. Hein at firstname.lastname@example.org, Ms. Metko at email@example.com, or Mr. Gums at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is the first week of January, but Ms. Hein anticipates that the team will fill up long before that. It’s a first come, first serve basis. Once the team is full, it’s full. So if anyone is interested, they should join ASAP.
