The Better Make Room movement is urging high school seniors to complete their education and own their future, and has designated April 26 as college signing day. 

April 26 is set aside for the people who’ve always encouraged students to celebrate with them. Let’s rally around students all over the country as they show off their acceptance letters with a #SigningSelfie on that day.

Better Make Room is a campaign to celebrate the great things teenagers will do next. It’s about staking a claim, forging a path and lighting the way for others. By setting one day for everyone to share their success together, it will be a lot more fun. 

Take the next step: Get a better education, have a better career, imagine a better future and live a better life.
