Student Speaker Competition
Members of the Class of 2023 may now vote for your choice of a student to advance to the final round of the Commencement Student Speaker competition. Let your voice be heard and select your choice today! Voting is open from March 21-28.
Videos from the semi-finalists (one from each school) are available below. They contain the speech that the student would deliver at Commencement on the National Mall if they are selected as the Student Speaker.
The five semifinalists with the most votes will proceed to the final round — a live audition in front of a panel of judges from the GW community.
