Skip to comments.Vanity: Needing help with an election slogan
Posted on 02/17/2011 12:26:42 PM PST by getmeouttaPalmBeachCounty_FL
My daughter is planning to run for student council after spring break. This will be her third school election. She's been a member of her student council during her 8th and 9th grade years, and would like to take this on during the next school year in 10th grade.
Where she's at is here...she is wanting to do a giant poster of a word cloud using words similar to this:
She has to come up with a slogan, and place it somewhere on her poster. She then needs to tie her slogan into her speech. She and I have come up with some ideas for the speech - Touching upon how she hears every day on the local news about campaign promises that are not met; lack of integrity in people in government who serve. Since she loves history classes and listening to political radio like Mark Levin ([[[[patting self on back]]]]), she feels she challenges herself to walk the walk...oh, and especially since her daddy just retired from the Marines.
I should also mention she attends a Christian school, so she will likely include 1 John 3:18 NIV, "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." She is a really good kid, too. She's seen as a leader in the school, and she's just a Freshman. Straight As, full Honors schedule, involved, kind, polite, athlete, volunteers for teachers, welcomes new students, involved in nearly all school service projects and was recently elected as a leader of the student service organization (the only Freshman) and she is in charge of the website for the segment of our school capital campaign which is run by student leaders (identified by the principal).
She also likes this verse:
"He taught me and said, 'Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live.'" Proverbs 4:4 NIV
I know FReepers are creative and bright and come here with tons of varying gifts. If you can offer some advice, tips and ideas, I will pass them on to my daughter. If you are drawing a blank and have read this far, will you at least give this a bump for more exposure? I'd appreciate it very much.
Thank you. You guys are awesome :)
I can only help her with her Math homework...sorry...
Walk the Talk
That's a purty darn convincing slogan right there! :-)
“Truth and Action”
how about ‘Winning the Future” (WTF)? or ‘Hopenchangey’?
54-40 or Fight!
No kidding. And I like Walk the Talk, too. Lol!! on the math... :)
“The brightest student council member in all 57 states” or “I can provide a birth certificate”.
I so love being a Freeper!

Give this school a change.

No nonsense with Maggie.
Because life is too short to have bad student government.
Maggie: Because you’re worth it.
Maggie: She’s great!
Open your mind. Improve your school.
Don’t rock the boat. Vote for incumbent Maggie.
The hallmark of a student council president is ‘well-organized.’ I don’t think her ‘word cloud’ fits the bill.
Remember to include something about protecting local wildlife, keep the posters simple, court the minorities, and if she and a few close friends can try to engineer a completely black and ruthless smear campaign on her opponents right before the election, there should be no need for tampering, bribes, or direct intimidation.
Worked for me in any case.
Win With Maggie
Most kids don’t care. “Vote Maggie” in as large a font as possible plastered on every wall should be enough to win most of the time.
