If you’re a valedictorian graduating from a Central Florida high school as part of the class of 2020, we’d like to hear your speech! Record a video of yourself giving your 2 ½ to 3 minute long speech and submit it to WMFE. Your speech could be heard on air on 90.7 WMFE and 89.5 WMFV and your video featured on WMFE’s YouTube channel and website.

Here’s how to submit your speech:

  1. Shoot a horizontal video of yourself giving your 2 ½ to 3 minute speech on your phone or using other recording equipment.
  2. Upload the video to a Google Drive or DropBox account so you can share a link to the file with WMFE.

We should be in communication with you within 24-48 hours to confirm receipt of your speech.
