Join Graduate Together Celebration to Honor Class of 2020
While the coronavirus is prompting cancelation of graduation ceremonies across the nation, AACTE joins the GraduateTogether2020 celebration to honor the more than three million high school seniors in America with the recognition they deserve. AACTE invites members to tune into the one-hour primetime special, GRADUATE TOGETHER: AMERICA HONORS THE HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2020 , on Saturday, May 16—via television, social media, and streaming platforms—to pay tribute to high school seniors, their extraordinary teachers, and their families.
The primetime special, developed by XQ Institute in partnership with The LeBron James Family Foundation and The Entertainment Industry Foundation, is a rally of all Americans around a message of hope and unity.
The partnering organizations are inviting you to get involved and spread the word about about how students, teachers, and families can get involved;
- Invite the Class of 2020 to submit photos for the first-ever virtual National High School Yearbook, created in partnership with renowned artist JR and his global participatory art project, Inside Out.
- Share GraduateTogether2020.com with your network. On the site, individuals can share their stories and have the chance to be featured on the show, on social media channels, and in PEOPLE magazine. High school seniors can also submit brief commencement messages for the chance to qualify for a $5,000 award.
- Using the hashtag #GraduateTogether, post on social media about the upcoming show, and encourage your followers to join the conversation leading up to May 16. This social media toolkit makes it easy.
