Individual recognition clips are separate from the virtual celebration ceremony. They are unique clips created for each individual participant to download and share on social media.

Typically individual recognition clips follow a format where institutions can include a few seconds of marketing video at the start of the clip and a few seconds at the end.  

The opening video traditionally includes a school logo, b-roll footage of campus/classrooms, or a short message from the administrator. The closing video is often a static slide with branding and engagement messaging or a video with message. You can be as creative as you wish.

See some examples of individual recognition clips here:
