• Each year, the students 1-5 are given a chance to participate in the elections.  They go through much of the same process as in the real world.  Each student makes a persuasive speech on why they should be chosen and what their Community Service project will be.  The classes narrow down the candidates to two per classroom in the Primary.  The formal election is held on the national Election Day.  All students go through the same process of signing in, getting the ballot and voting.  Volunteers count the ballots and the results are given.  The elected and the runners-up are invited to the Inaugural Ball held in January. In May, the Representatives complete their Community Service and project.  The rules on the project are to make sure you complete the project by the deadline and create a project showing what you did.  The projects are showcased at the end of the year as the students tell the classes what they did and how much they learned.  The Representatives have other jobs during the school year as ambassadors to the school.
