Vote for the 2023 Commencement Student Speaker!

March 21, 2023

We invited the Class of 2023 to enter the Student Speaker Competition for a chance to address their classmates, and other members of the GW community, at Commencement on the National Mall—an #OnlyatGW opportunity of a lifetime.

Now it’s time for the second round of the competition! One semifinalist from each school has been selected, and semifinalists' audition videos have been posted online. It's time to make your voice heard and choose who you think should proceed to the final round of the competition for the chance to represent your graduating class at Commencement on the National Mall.

The five semifinalists with the most votes will audition in front of a panel of judges from the GW community.

Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 28.
