Leadership for Student Activities - January 2015, NHS & NJHS Edition - (Page 4)
oday's technology-saturated communication
stream is constant and rapid, making it a
challenge to ensure your voice is heard. But
for student leaders-who must capture the attention
of the student body to gain support for their
activities-getting the word out is essential.
Thankfully, it's not about who can scream the
loudest. The most successful strategies are fueled by a little creativity,
and our feature article, Building a Buzz, does the brainstorming for you.
Starting on page 12, this article is full of tips on how to spread the word
in unexpected ways, and includes a review of the best tools to streamline
your social media outreach.
Our article on page 17 explores how student leaders are finding their voice
through idea exploration in the form of brief online presentations. These
opportunities are just another way advisers are helping students practice
leadership skills, connect with their peers, and pursue their passions.
Finding your voice, and making sure it's heard, is the first step to
making a difference in your schools and communities. We hope this issue
of Leadership for Student Activities assists you in that effort.
