Things to Consider

Some things to consider when applying!!
  1. Am I willing to put in the time and effort for this? If you win, you will have to work closely with the other two speakers, Mrs. Wowchuck, and Grad Council. These roles require a lot of dedication and hard work, but they are worth it!                                                                                                                                                                                                   
  2. What if I am nervous?  ? We know everyone will be nervous, but we need you to keep calm and composed through the process. Graduation will not be normal this year, so your video will be live premiered to thousands of people and stay online for years to come. We will help you succeed, but we need you to stay positive and professional.                                                                                                                                                         
  3. What if I don't win? Many more than three people will be applying, so there will be people who do not win. No one likes a sore loser. Congratulate those who won, and don't worry if you lost. We still have seen your amazing application and it will not be forgotten. There may be other opportunities for you! Applying for these positions takes courage! Be proud of yourself no matter the outcome!

Creating a dishonest application or video will result in disqualification.
