Jackrabbit Forensics has had a historic season! We have qualified more events and more students than ever before in our 100 plus tenure at SDSU, that's 22 events and 10 students. Together with your help we can send SDSU students from across SD, IA, MN and PA to nationals in Alabama.
Jackrabbit Forensics is one of SDSU's oldest co-curricular experiences at SDSU. We are made of up of passionate advocates, speakers, performers and students. We are students who study dairy science, communication, psychology, German, political science, engineering, mathematics, aviation and education. Forensics allows us the opportunities to speak about our fields of study in new ways to new audiences.
Jackrabbit Forensics earned many accolades during the 2018-19 regular season, so much so that we have qualified over 22 individual speaking events by 10 different students to the American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament! Not only did we qualify for nationals but we won the 2019 Championship of the Dakotas, the intercollegiate forensics tournament for North and South Dakota. Our historic year means we need some assistance in ensuring all students can attend our national tournament at the University of Alabama in April!
Your support would mean the world to us! For many of us this is our first year at State and on the team, 6 to be exact! Forensics has given us opportunities to perform across the region and to speak on the national stage would help us grow as speakers and students at SDSU.
Our teammate Olivia, a first-year from Spearfish, SD notes that "Forensics makes her feel important." While Olivia studies nursing she also will be competing in extemporaneous speaking at the national tournament.
Olivia isn't the only one who has been impacted by the activity, Lauren one of our seniors from Volga, SD explains, "Speech has given me the best 4 years of my life! I wouldn't trade my teammates, my experiences or the memories for anything!" Lauren qualified 6 events this season and is a candidate for the All-American team!
Your help will not only give us an excellent and premier competitive experience, but it will help impact our overall experience at state. To share the ideas we learn from other speeches in our classes and to create change within our campus community. Our team motto is "Speak your passion," and what we love is that the forensics community is full of passionate advocates who are addressing cutting edge issues across events.
