Ceremony dates and times for 2019 will be updated as available.  

Ceremony assignments

Students who qualify for State Recognition ceremonies will be assigned to a ceremony site in their state (or the state nearest to them, if there are no ceremonies in their state). Ceremony assignments are based on school location and venue capacity at each location. Invitations are sent out the first week of April, both by email and traditional mail.
