FOCUS ON SCHOOL ISSUES - I.E. WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO MAKE ATCHISON COUNTY COMMUNITY JUNIOR/ HIGH SCHOOL A BETTER PLACE? AFTER YOU’VE BRAINSTORMED A LIST OF 5-10 ISSUES, NARROW IT DOWN TO 2-4.
  12. 12. CAMPAIGN ASSIGNMENT: PLATFORM & JINGLE SLOGAN & JINGLE: EACH PARTY WILL ORIGINATE A PARTY SLOGAN AND A PARTY JINGLE (A SHORT ORIGINAL PIECE USING THE CANDIDATES NAME AND STANCE ON ISSUES TO AN EASILY RECOGNIZABLE TUNE). THE CANDIDATES NAME MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE SLOGAN AND JINGLE AND EACH MEMBER OF THE PARTY WILL BE A PARTICIPANT IN THE JINGLE. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE JINGLE COME FROM AN EASILY RECOGNIZABLE TUNE, ONE THAT IS EASY TO SING. IN THE PAST THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS CHOOSING A SONG THAT ONLY A FEW MEMBERS OF THE PARTY KNOW AND AS A RESULT SINGING THE SONG IS HARD FOR MOST TO DO, CONSEQUENTLY THE FINAL RECORDING IS WEAK.
