Senior Project

 
 
Are you a Community Member interested in serving as a judge? Please check out the links to the left for more information on what Senior Project is and to volunteer to serve as a judge during Boards, March 18th and 19th.
 
 
 
 
 
 

EHS Seniors -  The final step in your Senior Project journey involves delivering an 8-10 minute speech before a panel of judges. Once your English teacher has instructed you to do so, complete the following link/scan the QR code below: Sign Up for Boards.

 

 

 

Regardless of how much time is set aside in class for you to work on the required portfolio documents, each component must be completed no later than the dates specified below. Failure to meet these deadlines will result in a 10% penalty in the Soft-Skills category. Please be careful to submit work in a timely manner, so that it is possible for your teacher to evaluate it prior to the end of the marking period.
