Role of the Valedictorian
A valedictory is a speech that is delivered at the graduation ceremony. The speech is performed by the Valedictorian. The terms "valedictory" and "Valedictorian" come from the Latin valedicere, which means (or pertains to) a formal farewell.
The valedictory should fulfill two goals: it should convey a "sending off" message to the members of a graduating class; but it should also inspire graduating students to leave the comfort and security of their school with a full heart, and to embark on an exciting new adventure.
As the role of Valedictorian is to serve as a voice of the entire graduating class, your speech must be inclusive.
Tone: Formal Length: 3-4 minutes
A hard copy of your speech must be submitted prior to your audition. Plagiarism will result in disqualification.
