The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is excited to announce the fifth annual Student Speaker Competition for the CLAS undergraduate commencement.

Students who are interested should submit a typed manuscript of their speech, which should be no longer than five spoken minutes (~750 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be accepted until noon on Friday, March 22nd.
The student speaker committee will review all submissions and select five to move on to the next phase of the competition. During this next phase, students will be asked to present their speeches to the committee, as if they were giving it on commencement day. This second phase is scheduled to take place during the first week in April 2019.
After the committee has heard the speeches, they will select two students to speak at commencement, and name one alternate. Selections will be made no later than April 15th.
