My name is -----------, and I am running for treasurer. I know all of you are probably tired and bored of hearing all these speeches of people telling you to vote for them, so I hope my speech stands out to you. I think the quote “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away,” is something we should all keep in our minds. If I am elected for treasurer, I will try to make school something that you wish you could go back to. I have many ideas of how to make day to day school life more fun, and I hope I am voted for treasurer so some of my ideas will be used. My first idea is to have more student teacher competitions, like a water balloon fight or dodge ball game. There could even be a student teacher basket ball game or softball/baseball game. We have a lot of fundraisers at this school, but some people aren’t really into them and don’t help. One idea I have for a fundraiser is to have each homeroom collect cans, and whatever homeroom collects the most cans gets to try to dunk their teacher into a dunk tank. Another idea is that there could be slideshows that could be shown during lunch. I have a lot more ideas for the school year next year, and if I am voted for treasurer, theses ideas and others could happen. Vote ------------- for treasurer. Vote for me for a great school year, and every vote I get will be appreciated. If I win, I plan to change things at our school. Everyone wants to leave their mark on things, and I want to leave my mark on this school. If you vote for me I plan to make this school more fun and exciting. Vote for me so the year will be filled with those moments that take your breath away, that you measure the rest of your life on. Vote --------------- student council treasurer for the 2010-2011 school year. Thank you.
