I heard that the Ohio High School Speech League is getting rid of Impromptu Speaking. I haven't been able to find a news source (sorry debaters!) to verify, but multiple coaches have told me as such. If anyone can confirm this, please let me know. I do college forensics now, but I did Impromptu in high school and it makes me sad that they would do away with my favorite event :(

We don’t know anything about this, but if anyone has any news send it to us or forensikat :)



"Forensics Tournament? So like… You look at dead bodies?"



When someone obviously worse than you breaks and you don’t.

when you see a script obviously copied from a nationals piece but you know it’s going to score well anyways because the judge doesn’t know

Do you think it would be okay for partners to date if they agree, no matter what, they won't let whatever happens get in the way of their debating?

First of all- I want to say that this is a very individual question and there are exceptions to every rule and everybody’s different.

Second of all- you cannot really anticipate that it won’t get in the way of your debating. If in the case that you break up- it WILL be awkward. And you won’t want to spend a minute together other than the time you have to. And any synchronicity you may have had might be lost. 

BUT- it sounds like you two really want to be together, even in the face of obstacles. And good for you I support that! In your situation you may find that you are drawn to eachother and it becomes harder not being together than it would be if you were together. Seriously though who the hell wants to put DEBATE in front of meaningful youth relationships? PSSHHH
