Help NCTV17 Salute Our Seniors!

NCTV17 wants to celebrate our high school graduates so we’re producing a special TV show, “Saluting Our Seniors: Class of 2020!

This show is designed to pay tribute to the seniors from all six local high schools: Benet Academy, Metea Valley, Naperville Central, Naperville North, Neuqua Valley and Waubonsie Valley.

NCTV17 needs your help to produce this show. If you’re a graduating senior, please send us your videos or photos showcasing your final year in high school. Submissions might include:

  • A favorite memory or moment from senior year (e.g. first day of senior year, homecoming, a basketball game, theater performance, club activity, talent show, award ceremony, hanging with friends at lunchtime, etc.)
  • A photo of you in the dress you were planning to wear to Prom!
  • Show us what you've been doing with your time at home and how you've stayed connected to your friends
  • A video message or photo with signs of encouragement/inspiration to your fellow classmates – don’t forget your spirit wear!
  • A photo of you wearing your cap and gown - family shots welcome
  • A photo of you with a sign showing where you'll be this time next year

Use your imagination!  But please, keep it positive and G-Rated. If you’re a parent, teacher or coach of a high school senior, you’re welcome to participate too and send us your submissions!

If you're creating a new video, please capture the video horizontally and keep it under 1 minute. NCTV17 reserves the right to select which clips to use (or not use), given the above criteria. We may use the video in its entirety or just a piece of it.

The final show will air on Channel 17 and on Sunday, May 17 at 7pm.

Please submit your videos or photos, along with the name(s) of people included and any additional details, no later than midnight on Tuesday, May 12 at

Thank you for your participation as we “Salute Our Seniors!”
