Do You Have a Platform?

Nov 13, 2009

Homecoming is an important moment in any girl’s life, especially if she wants to get her hands on the crown. But in order to actually become Homecoming royalty, you have to be sure that you’re prepared – and it’s not just about looking good. In fact, most schools now have requirements in order so that just about everyone can run for homecoming queen – but they have to present themselves in a way that makes themselves look and feel great while being great people. This is where the platform comes in. Homecoming platforms are great for campaigning if you’re looking to get a spot on the court and usually, they’re compact little representations of you and what you’re about. If you want to make a successful platform for Homecoming, here’s what you’ve got to know:

  1. First off, people have to know your name, so make sure that you include it somewhere on your flyer or poster. Also, a picture can help match a name to a face, so include a nice – tasteful- photo of you that can help people recognize you on the ballot.

  2. List off your accomplishments or leadership roles within your school. Show that you’re involved and that you care about your school community. Talk about how you volunteer or if you’re class president. These roles help to show that you’re well rounded and in the end, these details can help you win a crown.

  3. Be creative! Platforms, just like any other kind of flyer, can be fun and interesting, so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through. Work with art supplies, unexpected materials, or even really cool accents to put together a poster that’ll really pop. Just don’t forget to include all of the information above!
