The committee considers the draft of your speech to be the most important factor in awarding this honor. The ability to articulate ideas in a concise manner, uniqueness of content, passion, and overall quality are heavily considered. The committee is in search of a student who has "something to say" to their fellow Engineering graduates and who is comfortable speaking in front of large groups. Your speech will be a reflection of your experiences here at UF and will be approximately three minutes long.
