Valedictorian Candidates

Campaign Period: April 5th – April 13th
Voting Period: April 11th – April 13th
Valedictorians Announced: April 16th (after 11am)

All students who have applied to graduate will be sent an email on April 11th to vote for their Valedictorian. You may “spoil” your vote should you not agree with any of the candidates.

Students will receive emails every 8 hours until a vote is placed. Due to convocation ceremonies going by majors, there is a slight chance some students may be entered into the wrong convocation ceremony. Students are able to either spoil their vote or vote for the Valedictorian within that Convocation Ceremony.

This year we have done things a little differently with the Valedictorian Elections as some of our students are off-campus due to placement. You no longer need someone to “nominate you”; however, all candidates must fill their information out online (see more details below). If you have any questions please email [email protected]

All student supporters will be emailed and asked to confirm their support of the Valedictorian nominee. They must confirm by April 11th (the first day of voting).

Campaign Period:
No posters are allowed to be created or placed anywhere. You are allowed to create a Facebook PAGE, not a group, to let others know you are running. Other than your personal social media (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter) you are not allowed to post in any groups, pages, or on other people’s walls. You must delete your page 20 days from the announcement of the Valedictorian voting results.
