  • Speech or Individual Events is a competitive IHSA activity. Similar to athletic sports, speech is challenging, competitive in nature, and requires regular practice and coaching. The team meets after school and competes from October through February. One can pick from 13 different events, all of which utilize writing or editing a speech, and working on its presentation. Students compete against other schools on Saturdays, with awards going to those earning the most points for the day. We belong to the National Forensics League (NFL), an honorary society that employs the art of creative communication.
