OMAHA – The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) nationally ranked competitive speech team, MavForensics, is hosting a public showcase of their talents ahead of this year’s national championship event.
MavForensics, which have been ranked in the top 10 schools for the past five years in a row, is inviting the community to attend a presentation of powerful performances of poetry, dramatic interpretation, and a variety of informative, persuasive, and after-dinner speeches.
The event will take place Sunday, March 29, in the auditorium of UNO’s Mammel Hall on the Pacific Campus, beginning at 6 p.m.
There is no cost to attend the event.
This year’s American Forensic Association tournament will take place in Portland, Oregon from Friday, April 3, through Monday, April 6.
Despite having fewer competitors than a majority of teams competing nationally, UNO has managed to match the performances of the nation’s best orators.
This year, not only did UNO win the Nebraska state tournament against four other nationally ranked teams, but two speakers, Senior Dan Cutter and Sophomore Doug Morris will be traveling to Georgia as Nebraska’s entrants in the Interstate Oratory Competition.
This is the second year in program history that UNO will be traveling to the national tournament as state champs.
For questions about Sunday’s event, please contact Charley Reed, UNO Associate Director of Media Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402.554.2129.
