Registration Close Date: June 4, 2021

High School seniors, congratulations on your upcoming graduation commencement!   We know that the last year has looked different than you have anticipated, however, we want you to know how proud we are of you!

2019 TAPS Graduate

Your graduation embarks on a new journey as a young adult and we are hoping that we can be a small part of that, as you also graduate from Youth Programs. 

We would like to extend an invitation to celebrate all that you have accomplished!   As such, we are planning an online celebration, in addition to recognition at the 2021 Nationals Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp in Washington, D.C. this May, so that your TAPS Family can remotely share this moment with you, your family and friends.


What's Included

Each graduate will have the opportunity to be recognized with an official slide that will be customized with your photo and personal message. 

Your registration for the virtual ceremony includes a TAPS graduation message scroll, and for dependent children, a military cord.  Please do not forget to register for a personalized Education Box at TAPS Education Care Package.


What's Needed by Participants

Graduate's Photo

We need a high quality, original, portrait along with the message you would like to appear with your photo on the official slide to thank your supporters and celebrate your achievements.

Where to send photos

Email youthprograms@taps.org when you are ready to send in your photos. Be sure to include "Graduate Photo Submission, (Last, First Name)" in the subject line.
