Congratulations on earning all four Scarlet Seals of Excellence! Now that you have mastery in leadership, diversity, personal development, and thinking and communication, you are ready to present in front of a panel of experts to earn your graduation stole!
Your panel interview will last approximately 30 minutes. Please prepare a 10 minute presentation that covers the integration of your learning in all four Seal areas. We encourage you to be creative and express your unique personality and style! This could be a PowerPoint, video, or a portfolio of work – choose the best format to demonstrate your expertise!
