Denver East Forensic Team Recognized As Top Ten Nationally

At the National competition in Salt Lake City, UT this summer, the EHS DEFT team was the only school in Colorado, and one of only 20 schools in the country to be recognized as a School of Distinction for the strength of its DEFT program. Congratulations to the teachers, students, staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the continued success of our DEFT team.
