Hey OTC! As Thespian Dinner approaches, it’s time to start talking about OTC Elections for the 2019-2020 school year! Below will be requirements to run for office followed by a brief description of each position. 

 

***Elections will be held on Monday, May 20th at 3:30 PM sharp*** (location will most likely be the choir room)

 

Requirements to run: 

  1. You must be a thespian! (Either already a thespian or getting inducted this year!)
  2. You must prepare a speech for elections! Speech length requirements will be listed below along with the officer descriptions. 

-We do time the speeches so please try and keep the speech within the time

requirements!

  1. You must complete a thespian/teacher signature sheet and attach a brief letter of intent explaining why you would like to run. (this can be short) Current officers only need to hand in the letter of intent. These will be due Wednesday, May 15th! 

-The sheet requires 12 student thespian signatures and 4 teacher signatures confirming

that you are fit to be running for a position! The sheets will be in a folder on the 

callboard.

4. You must meet the grade requirements for each office.

-Only rising juniors can run for the positions of scribe, secretary, and treasurer. (In the 

case of a freshman thespian who would be a rising sophomore, they’re also allowed to

run, but this case is very unlikely.) Due to last years new rules, rising seniors cannot run. 

-Only rising seniors can run for the positions of Vice President and President. You do not

have to be a current officer to run for President! Anyone can!
