Nominate a student for Student Speaker or Grad Spotlight at Convocation


What is a Student Speaker?

A student speaker is expected to prepare a valedictory-style speech that is approximately 2-3 minutes in length. CNC Communications will contact the student to offer coaching support in the development of their speech and a rehearsal schedule prior to the Prince George or Quesnel Convocation ceremony.

What is a Grad Spotlight?

A Grad Spotlight captures a grad in a video format, and is aired as part of the Convocation ceremony. The video will also be shared through CNC social media channels and website. This is generally done in interview style and includes preparation and practice ahead of time with CNC communications staff.
