History

DID YOU KNOW -- Since October 2000 when the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation television series was launched, speech students across the country have been explaining that the type of forensics they do has nothing to do with ballistics or blood splatter analysis.

The Virginia High School League has been supporting speech programs in public high schools since 1915 when it recognized a girls and boys champion in prose readings. The popularity of the event quickly spread and the contest evolved with the addition of pubic speaking in 1921, poetry reading in 1924 and spelling in 1930. Then came extemporaneous speaking and original oratory (with the removal of public speaking) in 1970, humorous and serious dramatic interpretation in 1986, duo interpretation in 1993, the splitting of extemporaneous speaking into domestic and foreign topics in 1994, storytelling in 1996 and impromptu speaking (with the removal of spelling) in 2003.
