Writing a School Election Speech

If you are writing a school election speech, chances are that you are running for a student government position. You want to build a great speech with strong, persuasive arguments that influence others - and influence their vote, too. Keep reading for some advice on writing a school election speech that people will like - and remember .
When you deliver your speech, you'll only have a limited time. That being the case, you need to focus on delivering a few key points very well, rather than lots of random points in an unclear fashion.
Allow yourself plenty of time to brainstorm topics and put together a well-formulated argument . Be specific and stay on topic. Start building up a profile of yourself and thinking about the messages you want to send your peers. What issues have inspired you to run? What qualities make you well-suited for the office?
Once you've done your brainstorming, it's time for pen to hit paper, or at least for fingertips to clatter on the keyboard.
Step 1: Who Are You?
Not everyone at school knows you. Tell them who you are, and do so in a way that showcases your best qualities. Some ideas to consider:
- What clubs have you been a part of?
- Do you have any experience with government or leadership positions?
- Do you follow class politics and are you active in helping others make decisions?
Step 2: Extracurriculars
Are you a leader outside of school? Students who aren't part of what you do probably don't know it.
What do you do off-campus that engages with the larger school community? Arts programs like music and theatre, community organizations like 4-H or Scouts, and sports teams are all good bets to show how well-rounded and well-connected you are.
Step 3: Network
As many wise folks have said, "It's not what you know; it's who you know." Do you have a network of friends who can hand out flyers and convince voters? Get 'em moving! Incorporate their successes into your speech: if everybody on campus has seen one of your flyers, obviously you know how to motivate fellow students in a project!
Step 4: Principles
We saved the most important for last. Are you eager to help influence your school and the community for the better? Ask yourself:
- What issues inspired you to get into student government?
- What successes can you point to?
- What problems can you improve?
That's the most important part of the speech. Build everything else around it. For help staying focused on your core issues, try a keyword outline .
Tips for a Great School Election Speech
Once it becomes time to actually deliver your speech, you should already have our 4-step process down by rote. Just focus on what you want to get done. A good basic rule is to pick two main issues you want to address. Then:
- Introduce yourself and give a quick - emphasis on quick - summary of your successes in and out of school.
- Present your main issues and intended solutions.
- Encourage your audience to vote for you.
- Tell them that their vote for you is critical.
- Thank them at the end of your speech for their time.
In a good speech, presentation counts for at least as much as content. Make sure that you balance your humility and modesty with your leadership potential and confidence.
It's tempting to go negative. Pointing out the flaws in other candidates' arguments may seem like a surefire way to make yourself look better.
Don't be fooled. Going negative is the Dark Side: quicker, easier, more seductive, but ultimately the good guys win. Use your time to make yourself look good, and if your opponents go negative, acknowledge that they've done so in your speech but refuse to rise to their bait. After all, your concern isn't your opponents. It's the wellbeing of your class.
Example of a School Election Speech
Read through this example speech for some inspiration.
Hello, everyone! I'm Pat D. Candidate, and I want to be the next sophomore class president at Townsville Academy. I'm a 4.0 student, captain of the soccer team and president of the Latin Club. I want to put my leadership experience to work for all of Townsville High.
I'm very concerned about the state of the arts programs at Townsville. Choir and band are both short on funding, and the theatre program has gone from four shows a year to just two. I have a plan for a series of fundraising concerts and events where all three programs support one another and bring in new contributions.
I've also been heavily involved in the debate over the new soccer stadium. Obviously, I love soccer - go Tigers! - but I believe the funding currently allocated to build a new soccer field could be better spent elsewhere. We already have a perfectly good field, and other programs need that funding far more. If elected, I hope to convince the school administrators to put that money to better use.
I know Colin made some comments about my ideas in his speech. This isn't the appropriate forum for that. If Colin or any other student has questions about my policies, I invite them to attend the all-candidates debate next Wednesday. Anyone who wants to attend can come, and snacks will be provided.
I promise to keep running a positive campaign, to keep my policies transparent, and to focus all my energy on the wellbeing of the Townsville sophomore class. I'm Pat D. Candidate, and I need your vote!
A good speech is vital to success in student government. In many cases, your speech will be your only real chance to make your case directly to your fellow students. Follow our steps, stay focused on your issues and you have a real chance of success.

A good campaign speech can persuade, excite, and motivate, compensating for weaknesses in other parts of the campaign. Although good speakers make it look natural, there are actually specific techniques you can use to make your own speeches more effective, techniques which apply to all manner of campaign speeches. Whether your speech is for a student election or governmental election, you can use these techniques to transform your speech into one everyone will be talking about.
Delivering Your Own Student Council Speech
- A lot of people get nervous when they give a speech, and when people get nervous they talk fast. But fast talkers seem untrustworthy. So if you get nervous, space out your words (literally, put five spaces in between each word on the page) to keep your speech measured.
- Don't go overboard with informality. You're asking to lead your peers, so they need to trust you can do that. Most people can't lead well, so to convince them you can lead well, your speech should also reflect that you're more capable than an average person. You need to strike a balance. Speak at a level just above the level of a typical conversation.
- Instead of: "We need to address the way we schedule our lunch breaks in a reasonable but fair way, because the way we do it now isn't fair to anyone."
- Try: "We have people eating lunch at 10:30 am. They're still serving breakfast at Burger King at 10:30! It doesn't make sense! By the time 2:00 rolls around, the early lunch kids are starving. There is a better way. We all know it."
Structuring a Campaign Speech
- So, if you’re talking to one classroom, don’t only talk to the classroom about a general problem the school has. Talk to the classroom about how that general problem affects them and how you can change it.
- For example, don’t say: “The breaks in between homeroom and first period aren’t long enough.” Say: “Everybody in homeroom has gotten at least one demerit for being late to first period. We can’t get all the way from North Campus to South Campus in time. Elect me as homeroom representative, and I won’t let the administration forget it.”
- The beginning needs to catch people’s attention and raise the questions you’re going to answer. The middle needs to provide the answers, and the end connects the answers back to the questions. In very simple terms: You tell them what you’re going to tell them. Then, you tell them. Then you tell them what you told them.
- Don’t say: “My name is Joe Blow, and I’m running for City Council. I’m a member of…”
- Instead, get right to it. Say: “Not a single person in this city thinks the parking situation on Main St. is adequate. No one.”
- There's a lot of ways to get this done. You can use a story, a challenge, a joke, or just vividly describe a problem. You just need to get the audience's attention quickly. Earn their attention, don't expect it to come to you.
- You want to have a good mix of facts, feelings, and action. If you only talk facts, your audience will get bored. Only talk feelings, and you’ll wear them out. Only talk action, and it invites disbelief, because you haven’t offered enough factual and emotional support for your argument.
- To continue with the parking example, don’t end your speech talking about the width and number of parking spaces on Main St. Make it bigger than that—something that makes them feel weaker for not supporting you and stronger for supporting you.
- “This isn’t just about parking spaces. The parking situation is just a symptom of everything that’s wrong with the Council in this city. We’ve asked. We’ve begged. We’ve done all we could. Now we have to send a message that they can’t just ignore us.” With this kind of appeal, you put the listener in a position where they are either a person who votes for you or a person who lets themselves be ignored. Most people will take the first choice.
Writing a Political Stump Speech
- Your speech needs a clear beginning, middle, and end.
- The beginning needs to hook the audience, you need to keep them interested through the middle, and the end should leave them nodding their heads in agreement, applauding and on their feet.
- Staying on message is about more than repeating yourself. Focus on a problem and then offer a solution. Say your issue is healthcare. That’s a multifaceted issue, so bring up specific problems, and offer specific solutions.
- For example, start by offering the problem: “Prescription drug costs are too high!” Give a few details or anecdotes to illustrate the magnitude of the problem, and then offer your solution: “And that’s why we’re going to negotiate directly with the drug companies to lower prices.”
- They are one of us and deserve our allegiance because they protect us.
- They are one of us and understand us because they have lived a life like mine.
- Emotional appeals can turn audiences against things for a simple reason: anger and fear are easy emotions to stimulate.
- For example, when a politician says: “The system is rigged! They think they’ve got you fooled, but I know different.” They are making an emotional appeal based on stoking the anger of the audience. When they imply that “they” think of the audience as fools, the speaker plays to the audience’s sense of ridicule. This infuriates the audience, turning the audience against “them.”
- For example, "Very few of us would argue with the proposition that 99/3=33. That’s because we’ve been logically convinced of its truth. There’s almost nothing a person could do to convince us otherwise, and therein lays the power of a logical appeal. However, it took us far longer to understand division than it did for us to feel anger or fear, or understand that we were part of a group."
- If your biggest appeal is associational, your argument is less about specific points than it is about you. Design your speech to emphasize your biography and why it makes you trustworthy. People elect a person, not a set of ideas.
- If your biggest appeal is emotional, keep your speech short, so that the audience doesn’t notice the logical flaws. Adjust your energy level to the audience's. If they're agitated, start slowly. If they’re bored, then start off at a higher energy level. Always work to an emotional crescendo, however. Never start at the emotional level you want to finish at.
- If your biggest appeal is logical, break up the facts with feeling. You can’t risk boring your audience to death, so you need to break up your logical propositions into bite-sized chunks. Think of it as the spoonful of sugar principle—a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down.
- If you will be speaking at a podium or beside a table, put your notes on a piece of paper or a notepad--not notecards. Very few people can shuffle notecards discretely enough to look professional while doing it.
- If you won’t have a podium and you must use notes, get your notes onto one notecard.
- Brevity is the soul of wit. No one is going to remember sixty word sentences. Since you are striving to be memorable, make sure to pepper your speech with short, punchy lines. You don’t want to sound like a limerick, but you do want to use alliteration, assonance, and rhythm to your advantage.
- For example, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” contains only nine unique words, with seven examples of alliteration.

Student Council Speeches

How to write a winning speech: a template, guidelines, & an example speech
Student Council Speeches mark the end of an election campaign.
Will yours be successful?
The final answer is in the hands of your fellow students. It's entirely their decision.
However up until they mark their voting papers 'yes' or 'no' you have the potential to make their choice of candidate for the upcoming year 'you'.
Writing a student council speech step by step
You'll find everything here you need to craft a winning student council speech.
- a template that includes all the necessary elements of a persuasive speech
- points to consider carefully before you write
- an example student council president speech
- tips for writing - the type of language to use, how to structure it and more
- vital tips for rehearsal . These make the difference between looking and sounding polished and bumbling.

Understanding your speech purpose
Understanding the nature or purpose of your speech could make all the difference between winning and losing.
Student Council speeches are persuasive speeches . Their ultimate goal is to get the 'yes' vote. To help you achieve that use the template below to cover all the essential elements.
Return to Top
Student Council Speeches Template
- Greeting - Attention Getter - The Hook You'll need an opening statement or rhetorical question to sit your audience up with open ears and minds.
- Who you are - your name, your place or grade in the school
- What you want - the role you are campaigning for: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Historian...
- What you are going to do for the audience - benefits to them in exchange for their vote . (Brief summary -you will expand this in the body of your speech.)
- Credibility - your qualification or expertise establishing your fitness for the role you want. (Brief summary - you will expand this in the body of your speech.)
- Transition leading to...
- Your Main Idea 1 - Your goal for the role, what you want to achieve, how you plan to do it, the benefits to the audience, your fitness for the job, transition to...
- Main Idea 2 - Supporting ideas - details and examples - transition to...
- Main Idea 3 - Supporting ideas - details and examples - transition to...
NB. Only include a second and third idea if you have time to expand on them. If not, move through to the conclusion.
- Summary of main points
- Re-statement of what you want - to be elected to the role you're running for
- Re-statement of the benefits to the audience
- Closer, clincher, call for action
Points to consider BEFORE you write
Research the role, your audience.
Avoid trying to impress with either 'big' words or use of slang. Both are traps! Be yourself.
What 'hook' will you use to get them to listen? Humor? Humor is good if it is relevant and inclusive rather than exclusive (no 'in' jokes!).
Your goal in the role you want
Avoid setting up expectations that you will deliver beyond your capability.
Can you really reduce school hours, increase academic standards, introduce a range of exciting new extracurricular activities, as well as have a 'green day' and a movie night every month? Keep it real!
Your credibility or qualifications
Now is not the time either to be shy or arrogantly big-headed! Let the audience know how fitting you are for the role you want.
Your school's requirements
If your speech does not meet pre- established criteria in any way you may find it is returned to you edited. It's safer to find out what those criteria are BEFORE writing to avoid having to re-write or worse, being disqualified entirely.
Mockery and personal insults are not clever. They boomerang back on you, letting your audience know you're not to be trusted and neither are you ready for leadership.
Readily acknowledging the skill and expertise of your fellow candidates sincerely in a way that doesn't demean yourself shows an open mind and maturity.
Student Council speech example: President
Here's a sample speech. I've written it from the perspective of someone running for President.
As you read it, imagine it said aloud. That will help you get the rhythm and flow of language. The speech is between 3 - 4 minutes long, depending on how quickly you speak.
Vote Sophia Clarke for Student Council President
"I’ve got a question for you. I’m not asking you to shout your answer out, or raise your hand. All I’m asking is that you give it room in your mind. Let it sit for a bit, and have a think about it.
My question is – do you believe like I do, that all of us deserve the opportunity to make the best of ourselves? Not second best, 3 rd , or even, highly commended. The BEST.
I’m Sophia Clarke. I’m in the 12 th grade, and I’m running for president. My vision is that each student is enabled to develop the skills and confidence to become the bigger, better version of themselves. The best they can be. Regardless of who they are, and what they need to achieve that.
It’s an audacious goal. Some would say an idealistic, rather than a realistic, one.
However I say it’s awesome. And that you’re intelligent people who realize that reaching any goal starts with taking the first step.
So let me remind you why choosing me, Sophia Clarke, for president, is also choosing a better chance for yourself, and everyone else to grow.
I know you, and I know your needs well. I’ve served on your behalf in multiple roles through my years here; secretary, auditor, public relations officer, and have successfully taken on multiple issues. You’ll know some of those through directly benefiting from them.
It was me who was behind the push to get a regular anti-bullying program running throughout the school. That was two years ago, and now the Teens Against Bullying message underpins what we expect and strive for in our every day dealings with each other.
We know incidents of bullying are far fewer as a result. As our orange tee shirts say we ‘choose kindness, acceptance and inclusion’ for each other, and our selves.
Who has been involved in our mentoring-homework program? Either as a buddy-tutor or as a student getting a helping hand? And who, like me, is passionate about making sure that everybody gets a fair go?
In the past year, under my watch that program has escalated. We have over 50% more tutors across more subject areas and more students taking up the offer of help. That is a fabulous outcome for everybody. Truly win-win.
A tick in the box alongside my name is a tick for the continued growth of those programs. Their value is proven. They allow each of us to grow and experience the strength and confidence that comes from knowing that we can make a positive difference in other people’s lives as well as our own.
When you vote me for President you get my capacity to organize, to liaise, to listen and to speak, working for the benefit of everybody.
A 'yes' for me is a 'yes' for appreciating and celebrating diversity.
A 'yes' for me, Sophia Clarke for President, is 'yes' to a better you.
And together that is a 'yes' to a better life, and a better school, for all of us."
Tips for writing your speech
- Brainstorm your ideas first. Start with noting ideas for the body of your speech as this is the most important part before going on to the introduction and the conclusion.
- Include your campaign slogan in your opening and conclusion.
- Keep your style conversational rather than overly formal. Use smaller rather than large sentences. Use active rather than passive words. These convey enthusiasm. Check this page on using action verbs . You'll discover how to go from boring bla bla bland to dynamic excitement.
- Lead with your strongest idea first . Give specific examples to illustrate it where possible. Eliminate 'weasel' words or padding that add nothing to your presentation.
- Aim to have your speech ready BEFORE the deadline . Give yourself time to prepare thoroughly, including time to review of your opponents' campaigns.
Timing and word count
Student Council Speeches are generally brief: around 1-4 minutes long which isn't a lot of time! That's between approximately 150 - 500 words at an average speaking rate of 150 words per minute.
To be safe say your speech out loud as if you were delivering it for real and time it because sometimes going overtime can result in being disqualified.
Going faster to fit everything in
Please do not be tempted to say it faster to get everything you planned said. As a strategy it doesn't work. You'll end up gabbling: speaking far too quickly and people won't be able to understand what you're saying.
Cutting out extra material
If you have got too much material for the time limit, cut it. Choose the least important ideas to let go of first. Then move on to rephrasing to reduce the number of words used to express a point.
When you think it's done, repeat the test. Say it out loud by as if you were giving it, and time it.
For more about word count see: how many words per minute in a speech
AFTER you've finished writing your speech
Please, please rehearse your speech ! Do not be tempted to wing it. The more you rehearse the easier it will be deliver it well.
Remember it is only 1 to 4 minutes long! In that time your goal is to have your audience ready to vote for you.
You can help them make that decision by being confident and prepared. You will show that through:
- your speaking style - natural, sincere, fluent, understandable (clear and able to be heard without straining)
- your body language - relaxed, open gestures, good eye contact and smiling
- your personal grooming or presentation because how you look 'speaks' too. Make sure that your clothing and general grooming supports your speech because, like it or not, you will be judged on both!
Videoed Student Council speech examples
How do other people handle a Student Council speech? What's their content and delivery like?
Are they funny? Formal? Too hurried? Confident? Familiar?
It can help to look at what others have done. Even if it's only to decide their way will not be your way!

How to Write a Speech for the School Treasurer
Tips on Writing a Welcome Address at a High School Graduation
Running for treasurer requires effectively persuading your classmates that you are trustworthy and skilled when it comes to handling money. One of the most effective ways to convince your fellow students of your appropriateness for the job is through the presentation of an effective and compelling treasurer speech. You can find a school election speech sample with a quick Google search using terms like treasurer speech or national junior honor society election speech. Refer to the speech for inspiration and ideas, but do not copy the material.
Welcome Listeners to Treasurer Speech
Welcome your listeners to the forum. Begin courteously by politely thanking the listeners for coming and making it clear that you appreciate their attendance. This starts your speech out on a good foot and begins to endear the audience to you, increasing the likelihood that they will vote in your favor.
Provide Relevant Background Information
Introduce yourself. Tell the audience your name, even if they most likely already know it. Indicate your grade level and what school activities in which you participate as well as any other tidbits you find appropriate for giving your classmates a glimpse of your character. This information allows the audience to get an idea of that you are already an active member of the school community.
Explain your Qualifications for the Role
Treasurers have many responsibilities, so you need to show that you are worthy of performing these duties satisfactorily. Discuss the math courses you've taken or other related experience you have such as depositing money in a student savings account that your parents helped you open at the bank.
Discuss Your Plans
Explain your plans if given the opportunity to serve as treasurer. Having a well-thought-out plan for school improvement makes you a more desirable candidate. Explain what you feel the school's money should be used for or how you feel you could increase the amount of cash available for student activities.
Ask Audience for Their Vote
Compel voters to select you. While it may seem obvious that you want voters to vote for you, don't just assume that they get the message. Drive it home by stating simply and clearly, “Vote for me.”
End with Catchy Slogan
Wrap up your speech with a memorable slogan. A short, catchy slogan provides a memorable closure to your speech. If you already have a slogan on your campaign posters, echo the slogan as you end your speech. If you do not, develop one. Use a simple, alliterative phrase like “Make Your Money Safe with Matt.”

Read Speech on Election on Vedantu
Indian Elections are one of the most important events in the Indian political calendar. Held every five years, they are a chance for the people of India to choose their representatives and government. The Election Commission of India is an independent body that oversees all aspects of the election process. It is responsible for ensuring that elections are free and fair and that the rules and regulations are followed.
The Election Commission of India was established in 1950, a few years after India became an independent country. It is headed by the Chief Election Commissioner, who is appointed by the President of India. The other members of the commission are appointed by the government.
The commission is responsible for all aspects of the election process since the vote is direct, secret and universal for every citizen of India over 18. It encourages voting amongst all sections of society including women, minorities and citizens living abroad.
The first general elections were held in 1952-1953 to choose members of the Lok Sabha (lower house) and state assemblies. Over time, voting has also become mandatory in India.
The Election Commission of India has come in for criticism in the past, most notably during the 2002 Gujarat elections. However, it has also been praised for its handling of recent elections, including the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
The Constitution of India guarantees every citizen the right to vote without fear or favor. The Election Commission of India is responsible for ensuring that this right is exercised in a free and fair manner.
People vote in India every five years to elect Members of Parliament (MPs) and members of the state legislative assemblies. The Election Commission of India is charged with overseeing all aspects of the election process, from deciding election dates to enforcing rules and regulations. It encourages voting among citizens including women, minorities and citizens living abroad.
The election process begins 18 months before a vote is to be held when the Election Commission of India decides on where polling stations will be located. It then begins to prepare for the elections by recruiting staff and training them in election procedures. The commission also prepares the electoral rolls or list of registered voters.
The essay describes the process of Indian elections and how the Election Commission of India oversees it. It also highlights some of the criticism that the commission has faced in the past.

Speech For Election In School - Long
A very warm good morning to our worthy Principal and respected teachers and all the students present here. I am ( write your name here ) from Class ( mention your class or section ). Today I got an opportunity to deliver a speech on the election.
The process through which people can choose their representatives is called elections for example the process through which members of parliament are being chosen. Once Abraham Lincoln said the words which are "of the people, by the people, for the people" which means people of a democratic country can choose their government by themselves without any pressure. They are free to vote for any candidate according to their preferences in order to perform the required actions to make the government and to run the country.
Elections play a major role in democracy as they are important for the development of a democratic country like India or any other nation in which people have the right to choose their government. In India, after every five years elections are held. The system of the first-past-the-post electoral system is used by the Lok Sabha and Vidhan sabha. The candidates do promotions of their party and give a speech for the election campaign in the public. Then in each area, electors can cast their votes according to their choice, and the candidate who gets more votes will be announced as a winner.
There are merits and demerits of the elections. Elections give every party a chance to compete with each other equally. The candidate does work properly so that they want to be in everyone's eyes and win the elections. Through elections, actual power remains in the hands of the people. If they can select any representative or party and allow them to form the government and that government does not work in favor of the progress of the country, then the same people have the power to throw the government from its position in the next election. The demerits of the elections are that some parties clash with each other as they do not want to see another one reach that place. From this, some people also harm others and put pressure on the people to support their party so that they will be in power. They also use improper ways to win the elections like giving bribes to people, giving alcohol bottles to each male person so that they will be on their side.
For fair elections, the election commissioner has to have electoral rolls in the country and needs other members who can regularly verify and update the electoral rolls. At the time of elections, the duty of the volunteer is to look after the elections so that they will be performed fairly and give people knowledge about the elections so that they come to know that it is so important to cast their vote to form the government. It is their right or duty to choose the government at the same time.
To conclude, I want to say that elections are the strong pillars of the country. It keeps the democratic country to be developed and helps in keeping its true essence. It gives the right to people of the democratic country to choose their government according to their choice. Thus, there is a requirement of proper awareness to be spread among the people so that they don't miss casting their precious vote because one vote can make or break the future of the country.
Speech For Election in School - Short
Very good morning to my worthy and respected principal and all the teachers as well as students present here. I, ( write your name here ) from ( mention your class ) is here to deliver a speech for the election.
Elections are one of the most important processes that are required to run a democratic country in which people have all the power to choose their representatives who will run the country or state or a region on their behalf. People with certain ages and voting rights are eligible to cast their votes in the elections. There are various methods of elections used. It keeps the long term development of the country. The most important factor of the election is that it can show the expression of the will of the people. That means which type of government they want to be in their country.
Undoubtedly, they help in choosing the representatives fairly but sometimes some candidates choose unfair means to win. For which proper check on the election process is required and on the other hand, there should be a proper system of Electoral Voting Machines ( EVM ) and proper check on that so that cheating can not be done.
Thus, elections will serve as the best tool if they are used fairly and no malpractices are allowed. Candidates should remember this if people have the right to choose them and allow them to run the government and if they don't do so, then they can be overthrown as well by the people. Therefore, honest and fair elections should be taken.

Many of you probably know me best for tripping over my feet and falling face first off the stage during prom . Once I got over that embarrassment, I decided I could face you here today.
What I've Done Already
From the first day I arrived at Sample High School, I knew I wanted to become more involved. From serving on the school newspaper as the Features Editor to helping plan prom last year, I consistently spend time in leadership roles and try to make this school an even better place than it already is.
Many of you probably know me from my work with Key Club and the volunteer time I've spent at Sunnyvale Nursing Home and cleaning up our community park.
Running for the Role of _______
It probably won't surprise you that I have decided to run for student council for the role of ___________. As student council _________ (role), I will strive to continue to make improvements in the school for every student here at Sample High.

Class or School President Speech Examples
If you're running for the highest role in your class or school, your speech really needs to stand out.
Make the Opening Stand Out
Hello, my name is John Doe and I'm a junior. I'm not the type of student who will lead a senior prank or skip class with you, but that probably isn't what you want in a class president anyway. What I do offer is steadfastness, hard work and the ability to work with others even during difficult circumstances while still keeping a sense of humor.
Last year, when the cafeteria stopped serving the salad bar, I was able to get it reinstated by starting a petition, having many of you sign it and taking it to Principal Smith. Because we worked together, we were able to bring the salad bar back, and now it's better than ever.
During the last three years at Sample High School, I've been involved in many activities. I've played basketball, spent a short time in the school band, worked on various committees and helped tutor students after school. Last year, I was adopted into the National Honor Society and started an after school club for airplane enthusiasts that meets once a week.
What I'll Do for You
As your student council president, I vow to end all homework. Just kidding. I can't do that, but what I can do is be your voice with the school administration and work to make this the best year Sample High has ever had. I will introduce ideas for events, such as a weekly sock hop after high school basketball games and we'll work together to help the community through volunteer work and showing them just how dedicated the students at Williams are.
Ask for the Vote
I would appreciate your vote for president. If elected, I will continue to fight for the things that are important to students, no matter how big or small they might be. Let's work together to make our stamp on this community and on the world.
Vice President Speech Sample
A vice presidential speech needs to be highly effective to gain student confidence.
Instead of starting with my name and what I'm running for, at which point you'll tune me out and start looking at the smudge on your left shoe, I am going to tell you my favorite memory so far from high school. My first day at Sample High School, I had no idea how to get to my classes. This school is big, and I was lost.
On top of that, I was rushing around trying to find my class and tripped and fell flat on the floor in front of the cutest guy I'd ever seen. Not only was he nice enough to help me up, but several other students rushed to help me, got me to my classroom and made me feel better about how goofy I was.
That was the moment I fell in love with Sample High School. We all help each other and you don't find that just anywhere.
Why I'm VP Material
One of the reasons I'm running for Vice President for the student council is because I want to give back to the high school I love so much. I want to be that friendly face for new students coming in and a defender for students already here.
During the last two years, I've prepared myself to serve as Vice President by taking on extra work organizing a fan club for our football players to cheer them on when they play at home and make sure our school is represented in the stands at every away game. I've spent time as an office aid, learning about the everyday running of the school and silently taking notes on what we as students can do to improve things and how we can work with the administration.
What I'll Do as Vice President
As your Vice President, I will stand beside your president, offering support and stepping in when she is not able to be here or asks for some extra help. I'll sit on the student council and get actively involved in planning prom , graduation and homecoming. I will always be here to listen to your concerns or to help you off the floor should you fall flat on your face like I did.
Ask for Their Vote
I am asking for your vote for VP of the student council. I love this school, I want to be helpful and I want us all to build memories we'll remember and treasure forever. Now, if I can just get off this stage without falling on my face, I'll be in good shape.
Secretary Election Speech Sample
In your secretary speech, explain why you are perfect for the role.
Today, I want to tell you something about me that you might not know. From the time I was five years old, I've been taking guitar lessons. I don't play in a band and I don't take music classes at school, but every night when I get home, I pick up my Fender and I relieve any stress from the day by playing a few of my favorite classic rock songs.
Why You Should Elect Me
Learning to play a musical instrument takes a lot of time and stubbornness. There are times when I just wanted to quit because my fingers were raw from trying to learn a new chord or that song just didn't sound right. However, I stuck with it until I overcame the challenge and that is exactly what I'll do as your secretary. If there is an issue that needs to be solved, I won't quit until we figure out a solution. I will bring your concerns to the other council members and like learning a new chord, I will stick with that concern until we figure it out.
I would like your vote for secretary of the student council. You never know, I may even bring my guitar to a student council meeting or two and just set it by my side as a reminder of why we need to work hard to achieve worthwhile things.
Treasurer Election Speech Example
A class treasurer needs to show his or her trustworthiness and math abilities during the speech.
Beginning of Speech
Hello fellow students and staff,
I don't like to brag, but I'm really good at math. I know, all of you who are really good at English hate me right now. However, if it makes you feel any better, English is really hard.
The student council treasurer is in charge of keeping track of money and numbers, so this role is a perfect fit for me and I've decided to run for the position.
What I've Done
I've been a member of Jackson High's Mathletes for the last two years. In case you're not familiar with this group, we are a group of students who love math and go out and compete in events. We've won state twice in the last three years.
I also am a member of the orchestra. We perform throughout the school year and at school basketball games.
The student council treasurer has to be good at math to keep track of all those numbers. Vote for me and I'll make sure our numbers add up. I'll also have fun doing it because I'm just crazy enough to love numbers.
Pulling From Different Candidacy Speeches

Making Your Student Council Speech Stand Out
While there are certain traits and promises the student body expects from every candidate's speech, they want to choose one person who stands out from the crowd. Even if you are running for a smaller position such as a PR officer or sergeant-at-arms, you may need to make a great speech as well in order to get elected. Make your speech the most memorable one in the room with these tricks and tips.
- Grab a thesaurus and look for synonyms of common words used to describe the position you're running for. When all the other secretarial candidates talk about their attention to detail, you can use words like meticulous or assiduous to sound different.
- Include visuals like props, a themed outfit, or specific hand gestures to give your speech a multidimensional feel.
- Choose a speech theme to structure your presentation like a specific social media platform, a historical event, or a particular sport. Look for a theme that relates well to your desired position.
- Invent a catchphrase that captures the spirit of your speech to keep the student body talking about it all the way to the polls.
- Tailor a famous speech to make your points by changing a few choice words and keeping the most famous lines intact.
- Add sound effects, song lyrics, or music to give the speech more life.
- Keep your speech short and to the point and be honest about why you'd like the position regardless of whether it's a big or smaller role.
- For smaller roles, such as sergeant-at-arms, auditors, or public relations, hone in on what qualifications you have and use vivid examples to keep your audience interested.
Delivering the Speech
Once you've prepared your speech, practicing a few times alone and in front of an audience can help you get ready to deliver your speech with confidence. Whether your speech is lighthearted and funny , or serious and to the point, there are a few things to keep in mind. During your speech:
- Make eye contact with those you are speaking to and don't focus too heavily on one person.
- If you make a mistake, keep going. No one knows what your speech is supposed to sound like.
- Practice some deep breathing exercises or mindfulness beforehand to calm nerves.
- Visualize yourself doing your speech well the morning of it.
- Remember to take deep breaths throughout your speech and speak a bit slower than you normally would as nerves can cause you to speak more rapidly.
Student Council Speech Jokes
Infusing a bit of humor into your speech can help you better connect with your audience, while making your speech really stand out. You can try using silly jokes, sarcasm, or inside jokes that only those who attend your school would get. You can think about:
- Saying in a serious tone, "Settle in, I've got about three hours worth of material to get through."
- After your speech saying, "Okay, now for my speech."
- Using a teacher or principle as a funny example such as, "I'm as passionate about organization as (insert teacher) and as energetic as (insert teacher) after he/she's finished his/her coffee.
- Saying, "I care about this position as much as (teacher) cares about (insert book, movie, or learning principle that teacher speaks about a lot).
- Saying, "I was really nervous to give this speech so I've been practicing a lot in front of my (insert pet) and he/she said it could use some work, so I guess I'll just give this my best shot."
- Using self-deprecating humor by saying, "My annoying need to be organized and scheduled would make me a great fit for this position."
Make Your Election Speech Memorable
Whether you use one of the samples listed here or write an entirely new speech, be sure to put a personal touch on the speech. By focusing on what makes you unique, your passions and your skills, you will show confidence in front of your classmates and let them see a side of you they may not have seen before.
