Send the Forensics team to NFA in California!

NFA 2019 is in California. Exciting? Yes! Expensive? Indeed.

If you competed for the UW-Eau Claire Forensics team in the last 45 years, you surely remember attending the NFA National Championship tournament in April. The long bus ride, breaking into an out round, competing with a close group of teammates and friends for the last time, the culmination of the years of hard work. Not much has changed for today's Blugolds, except for one important thing: NFA is being hosted in sunny California instead of it's typical Midwestern location this year!

Of course, we are excited to travel to Santa Ana, CA to compete (who wouldn't be?) Unfortunately, however, on top of our usual hotel, food, and entry expenses, we also have to pay for airfare and additional travel expenses for our largest team to date.

That's where you come in. We need the help of our Forensics family to send our team to NFA, one of the most important competitions of the season. 

Whether you can give $10, $50 or $500, your gift will make a difference. See the side menu of this page to learn more about the impact that your donation will make.
