Thanks for sharing your speech, Steph, and for helping other students get an idea of what to say!


Beginning of Student Council Speech

Good afternoon, students and staff members! My name is Stephanie Keebler, and I'm running for student body president. I'll keep this quick as I'm sure you are ready to get out of here.

You might be saying to yourself, "Should Stephanie really be the student body president? After all, she's only been at our school for two years."

It's true that I am fairly new to Jefferson Anderson High School. At first glance, this may seem like a disadvantage. I didn't attend this school for my freshman and sophomore years, and I've only known most of you for a couple of years.

When you think about it though, there is actually a benefit in choosing someone who is coming into the school from somewhere else. I have new ideas that I can bring in from the school I was at before.

Are you tired of doing the same old things year after year? Are you ready to do something different?

One thing I noticed about this school when I came last year is that most of the students didn't really get to make any of the decisions here at the school. Did anyone ever ask you what you wanted to do for a fundraiser? Did anyone ever ask you what you wanted to buy with the money we raised? Who makes these decisions?

Those types of decisions are left up to student council. The person you choose to represent you as president will speak for the entire senior class. Do you want to choose someone who will make those decisions for you without knowing what you want?

If you vote for me as student council president, I promise to always get your opinions before making any decisions. You should have a say in the actions that will affect you.

Every single one of you can come to me with your ideas, and I promise to listen and speak for you.

I may not be the most well-known person running for student council president, but I promise to listen to each and every one of you.

You matter. Your opinion matters. Don't choose someone who will make all of the decisions for you. Don't vote for the person who will pick whatever their friends want them to choose.

Choose someone who wants to be your spokesperson. Choose someone who cares about what you want.

Choose me, Stephanie Keebler, for your student council president.



End of Student Council Speech

When writing a student council speech, you need to remember to research what the student body NEEDS and WANTS. You can interview students, teachers, administrators, etc. to find out what would help your school grow and develop in a positive direction, then incorporate those ideas into your presentation.

This advice is good whether you're running for student council president, treasurer or secretary. Do your due diligence and know what it is your target audience wants to hear before you write your speech!

I want to be a member of 2015- 2016 student council because I would love to be apart of the council and try to make a difference in school. Also, because I did not make it the previous year, I am more motivated to redeem myself almost and show the student body of all the ideas that could help the school and the community. Finally, I want to be apart of student council because this would be great to add on to my college resume.

To be truthful, I have not joined or participated in many clubs to really prove myself to be a worthy student council representative and I am not going to be dishonest about it. But, that also shows that I will focus mostly on student council outside of school next year and show everyone how great of a representative I can really be and that I will put in 150% in every fundraiser and school activity that I will be apart of.

Some of the ideas I have for student council is that we could give around positive, thoughtful quotes and pass them around to students once in a while to brighten up their days or put a couple in the bathrooms or something next to the mirrors. Another idea I have is that we could have like assembly games/races where students/ teachers volunteer or there could be something you have to do, like donate a dollar too see like which teacher is faster, or is better at a particular game. Students would want too go to it because it’s cheap, entertaining, and they would miss class. These are some of the ideas I have for student council.
