Seniors, Let Your Voice Be Heard at Graduation

Any graduating senior may apply to present one of two speeches during graduation. In order to
apply, please follow the directions below.

Using your best writing ability, please write an explanation of 250 words or fewer about why
you should be chosen to represent your class as a speaker at graduation. Be sure to include the
topic of your proposed talk, as well as a title that you potentially wish to use. Please note that
you are not to write the speech itself, just a description of your proposed topic. Your essay
needs to explain the rationale behind the topic that you chose and its relevancy to your peers and
the audience. Write or type your essay on a separate paper. Be sure to attach this form to your
essay when you submit it.

Your essay will be reviewed by a panel of staff and seniors and will be judged according to…
Originality
Diverse appeal
Relevancy of message
Motivation for speaking

If selected to be a finalist, you will be contacted for an interview with the committee to discuss
further your interest in being a speaker at graduation. This interview will be mandatory, and
students unwilling or unable to be interviewed on that afternoon will not be selected to present
graduation speeches. Interviews will occur after school during the first full week of May.
Make sure to turn in your essay, attached to this form, to Mrs. Miller in the Main Office of
Jamestown High School no later than 2:30 P.M. on Friday, May 4, 2018.

Finn Hulse to Represent the United States at the International Philosophy Olympiad

The American Philosophy Olympiad is the Pre-College Philosophy Writing Contest of the USA connected to the world of international philosophy. The top two American writers win a trip to a different host country each year. In 2018 the two winners will be traveling to Bar, Montenegro to compete with national winners from more than 50 other countries. Mr. Finn Hulse will travel with the American team in May. The mission of both the APO and the International Philosophy Olympiad is for high school students to contribute to the development of critical, inquisitive, creative and international thinking. All students write a philosophy essay in response to one of four philosophical prompts or questions at the IPO during a four-hour timed writing in a language which is not their own! Finn will be writing in French. The four official languages of the IPO are English, French, German and Spanish. The other American winner, Mr. Parsa Modareszadeh from Texas, will be writing in Spanish.

Congratulations, Finn, on your academic accomplishment!
