This sample student council speech was sent in by Dylan from the US, who is running for Student Council President. He shared it in order to help provide inspiration for others working on a similar speech.
I hope you find it useful.
My name is Dylan. I am running for student council president, and I am going to change the school as much as I positively can.
Most of you know me or have at least seen me around the school. I have been at Menlo for a long time, four years, and have seen the various principals, administrators, and teachers. I have seen what this glorious school needs and to how change things to fit those needs.
Menlo is not the only school I have been to. I have been to four other schools as well. One of those schools was in Africa. I have a lot of experience in schools and how to make a school thrive. I can bring these various ideas from around the globe right to the center stage of Menlo. I will fix any problem in the school, even if it is a deadly rat infestation!
There is one thing that many other schools have, that is not so present in Menlo. Does anyone ever ask you what YOU want to do to the school? Does anyone ever ask you how YOU want to help your fellow students? I will take this role with all seriousness and I will take it head on. I will promise to listen to everyone of your problems, comments, or suggestions in connection with the school.
Because of my heavy immersion in many different schools and environments, I feel as though I can bring a lot of good to Menlo, and only help it positively.
Choose someone who will fully help Menlo and not treat it like a joke. Choose what your gut is choosing. Vote Dylan for student council president, and LET THE CHANGE BEGIN!
