Commencement Student Speaker Contest
It is the Eccles School’s tradition to choose a student to speak at the Convocation ceremony to represent their experience and deliver an inspiring message to all 1,000 graduating students in attendance. All students graduating in Fall 2019, Spring 2020, and Summer 2020 are invited to submit a video for the graduation speech contest.
Here are some guidelines for a successful submission:
- Your speech should be around 3 – 4 minutes (500-600 words).
- Have a clear story, theme, or message.
- Mention a professor or staff member who helped and inspired you.
- Talk about your future and how the Eccles School helped to shape it.
- Be authentic and positive.
- Speak clearly and practice the speech before recording so you’re not reading/looking down the entire time. It does not need to be memorized, but the more you look at the camera, the stronger your submission will be.
When you’re ready to submit your video, upload it to YouTube with privacy settings set so those who have the link can view the speech, and send your link by midnight at Monday, February 17 to email@example.com. A committee of Eccles School staff and faculty will choose the winning speaker and notify them by March 1. If you have any questions, please email us at that address.
