How to Write a Student Election Speech
So you've put up your campaign posters, ingrained your slogan into the students' heads, and are confident in your campaign. What do you do now?
Give a speech. Let the moment of terror pass, because you are really going to GIVE A SPEECH.
Drive home your point by giving a speech so powerful that teachers won't allow future speeches because they can't compete with yours. How do you do that? By following these simple rules:
Number 1: Always Dress Nice
Don't you feel uncomfortable when someone talks to you dressed like a slob? So what makes you think people in the audience are any different? Before you get up on stage to tell the entire school why they should pick you, you must pick the proper clothes.
By dressing as if you were about to meet the President of the United States. This will help you look professional and let you get your message across without any distractions.
Number 2: Write Down Your Main Points
What do you like about your school? What do you dislike about your school? What are some of your strengths? How will you use these strengths to benefit the school?
These are some of the ideas you will want to write down. Once you have a list of 5 to 10 points, try to narrow them down. If you are having troulbe coming up with a list, ask your friends and family for help.
Number 3: Practice Your Speech
Practice in front of your bathroom mirror. Practice in front of your bedroom mirror. Practice in front of your friends. Practice in front of your family. Practice in front of your pets. Practice in front of anybody that will listen.
See how long it takes for you to give the speech. Is it longer than the allotted time? Practice some more. Is it too short? Practice some more. The more you practice, the more confidnece you'll have, and the more votes you'll get.
Number 4: Give the Speech.
Take a deep breath, imagine the audience in their underwear, and deliver a fantastic speech.
