Download the Valedictorian application package:

Valedictorian applications are an excellent opportunity for graduating (undergraduate or graduate) students to nominate a fellow graduating student who best represents the student community at McMaster University. Valedictorians will demonstrate high leadership and communication skills. In addition, and pursuant to the selection policy, applications will be evaluated on such factors as personal achievement and community outreach. Valedictorians will deliver their speech (no longer than two minutes) to the convocation in which they graduate. Attendees will include graduating students, faculty, honoured guests, family, and friends.
