Individual Events (aka "Forensics") is comprised of twelve distinct events split broadly into two branches - Interpretation categories and Public Address categories. In Interpretation categories, students perform the work of another author. In Public Address categories, students are the authors of the material which they present. Middle Level Individual events include most of the high school Individual Events in a slightly modified form.
On a rotating basis, a few categories will also have a 5/6 section, open only to those in grade 5 or 6. There is still an "open section" in each 5/6 category, as well.
2020-21 Storytelling, Dramatic Interpretation, Sales, & Declamation
