Attention graduating seniors!
During MTV News' Class of '09 Week, we've celebrated high school graduation season with stories and memories of graduation from some of your favorite celebrities — including "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet — and touched on some key cultural milestones for this group of seniors. One of the biggest milestones is, of course,
It's simple: we want graduating seniors to shout out to the Class of '09 with a video message on Your.MTV.com. Tell us about your own hopes and dreams, what you think the makes the class of '09 rock, just say "best of luck!" ... any or all of above. Play it straight, spit some rhymes, act it out as a "Twilight" character — do it your way. The video we decide is the most fun, interesting and original is the winner!
That winner will be announced on Sunday, June 28, in Forks, Washington, by MTV News' own Larry Carroll, who is well-known to "Twilight" fans everywhere. Why him, why then, and why there? Well, get this: Larry will be giving the valedictory address at a special "Twilight"-themed graduation happening at the real Forks H.S. (a very special place to all Twi-hards).
For maximum Class of '09 drama, he'll announce our winner during his valedictorian speech to the entire town! People will cheer, "Twilight" tribute bands will play songs, and we'll capture it all — and that's not even the grand prize!
The winner of our "Class of '09 Shout-Out Search" will be flown (with a guest) to Dallas at the end of July for Twi-Con, one of the most awesome Twilight conventions of the year, and will get to see the cast! And, of course, the winning video will also appear on MTVNews.com, and may even air on MTV!
