Senior announcements can be a fun part of the yearbook creation process. It’s an excellent opportunity for senior high school students to showcase their choice of announcement to the worlds they leave behind. Many take this opportunity to show their wise or joker sides one last time so their classmates can remember them as they were. Others prefer to include a generic message or famous quote and move on with their lives. Whichever side of this you fall on, the idea is to be true to yourself and enjoy the opportunity.

While there are infinite things you can include in your senior announcement, here are some ideas to get you started.


If you’re famous for being an overachiever or want to tell the world about your goals and aspirations, you can make your senior announcement a biography. This is your chance to let the world know who you are and what you want to be. You can include your favorite classes, memories, professional milestones, and a challenge you overcame with the help of your peers, for example. This is your spotlight, and you can shine it on whichever parts of your life you want.

Motivational Quotes

Moreover, you can use motivational quotes or famous sayings by people you admire. This could be something one of your teachers told you that you have always remembered or a catchphrase you use whenever things get tough. You may have a favorite line by which your friends or teachers know you. Whichever words resonate with you, include them—as long as they’re not obscene or insulting.


You can also include a personal dedication in your senior ad. For example, you can shout out to your friend group or favorite teachers. You could also tell your sports team how great it was to be a part of the group, including your team’s victory quote. The idea here is to let someone else know that they were an essential part of your school life and will be remembered in the future.

A Love Letter

Another idea for a senior ad is to write a love letter to your beau. If you’re romantic, why not let your love know how much they mean to you by etching your feelings in print. While many may steer clear of this option for fear of splitting in the future, your love for each other is accurate, and that’s all that matters. So wear your Shakespearean cap and produce a love letter for the ages.

Answers to Fun Questions

If you have a fun spirit in your school, answering fun questions in your senior ad could be a great idea. You can ask your friend group or the class to come up with questions so you can all answer at least one of them in your senior ad. As you grow older, this will bring many laughs and joy. If you want to reminisce on your school days, go through your yearbook and find a joke or two that will make your day.

A Family Letter

Finally, if you have a loving family and want to write a heartfelt letter, this is the perfect opportunity to publish it. Your family wants the best for you, and what better way to express it than on your senior yearbook announcement. They can include their own words of wisdom for yourself and your class and show the world just how special you are. Many times, it’s their words that will keep you going when you no longer live with them.

These ideas will help you get started on your own senior announcement.
