Topic: What should I write for my 8th grade graduation speech?
December 12, 2019 / By Kelsey Question:
I'm salutatorian for my 8th grade and I have to write a graduation speech, but the speech has to be a sustained metaphor.
here's an example of one of the previous salutatorian's speech
"As long as 11 years ago, our parents placed us in little, safe clay pots in the garden of learning..."- so the theme is plants
I can't think of anything at all, so- any ideas??

I would use the metaphor of a house and laying a strong and stable foundation during the last several years and going on to become strong and sturdy facing up against the challenges of the future.
Compare your education for training for a major military operation (LIFE).
Growing as vegetation.
Being molded from clay into a pot.
Being shaped by an artist.
Why don't you compare school with shopping? each experience is a "product" and you decide what you must really bring back to home (life)..
hope this is helpful
good luck and congratulations for being in charge of the speech
