Students Run For Student Council

Submitted by julia.murray on

Art City Elementary school has a student council.  Each year students in the sixth-grade have the opportunity to plead their case in front of their peers as to why they would be the best fit for the student council.  Before they get to the week of posters, students decide in their classrooms who they want to represent them.  The students nominate and vote for nine students in their class, after the class picks, the teachers make reccomendations and the students get permission from their parents.  The week of elections students have the opportunity to create a poster that depicts what kind of council member they will be, pass out stickers or some kind of propaganda, then the day of the election they deliver a speech expressing why they would make the best council member.
