Micah Chang started this petition to Student Government Organizer Wildwood School

 

Hello, my name is Micah! Recently, our elementary school changed their process for electing students for student government positions. What I mean by this is, that instead of public speaking in front of the school, the nominees would send in a video, and it would be played in the classroom. The process for the SG election was changed because it was supposed inspire more kids to try running for a position.

   However, although this encourages more people to try and run for a position, student government is about representing the students, and a big part of that is  speaking for/to the students. Therefore if you can’t public speak, it will be hard to advocate for your school. Which is why students should make a speech in front of the voters  because it’s teaches kids to be less afraid of the public, be more confident in themselves, it can help improve your persuasion skills, and is a good thing to know how to do in the future. And if you can’t do that you should not be running for student government, in my  opinion. Also as you make your speech in front of the public,  it is easier to connect with audience, rather than on video.  As a former secretary for my elementary school,  this was a shock when I learned the process changed because my experience running for secretary improved my confidence a lot! Which is why I hope you will support me in trying to change the election system of our elementary school and bring back the system we used to have.

Thank You and Have a Nice Day
