Submit a 5-minute speech to be eligible to win.
What should I talk about?
As a high school senior, you are currently experiencing the college planning and application process. The keynote address should be about this experience. Share your strategies, what worked and what you might have done differently. Is there anything you didn’t expect? What did you learn that a high school junior should know? Remember that your insight will help the junior class prepare for what’s down the road. Your speech may be funny, interesting or informative…hopefully a little bit of all three. Please refrain from a step-by-step to-do list. Your goal is to capture the attention and interest of your listeners with stories and energy.
Who can apply?
College-bound NH high school seniors. The decision of the contest judges will be final and binding. Entries will be judged on content (ability to communicate primary messages), relevance to the target audience, originality, creativity and artistic and technical proficiency.
When should I apply?
All speeches should be received by our office by Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Finalists will be notified soon after and the winner will present the speech at Destination College.
What can I win?
$1,000 college scholarship awarded to the winner.
