Forensics is “the study and practice of public speaking and debate.” During the weekend of January 19-20, YISS hosted the third KAIAC Forensics Tournament of the 2017-18 regular season. Nearly 200 students representing 11 schools from around Seoul and as far away as Daejeon took part in speech and debate events such as poetry recitation, open oratory, impromptu speech, parliamentary debate, and others.
YISS students were finalists in several events, and although no one secured top honors, the school placed 3rd overall for the season. The Forensics Club now looks forward to competing in the last tournament of the year at KIS and putting more students in the final three.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the tournament a success!
