2018 State Officer Candidate Application


State Officer Election Process

An objective test will be given to each officer candidate. Then, all candidates for an individual office must be interviewed by the screening and nominating committee (one student from each district). Each committee member will evaluate each candidate on the interview. These interview scores will be calculated and averaged, however, the highest and lowest interview scores will be dropped. Each candidate will deliver a speech before the screening and nominating committee. The committee shall nominate a minimum of two candidates for each office, if candidates are available and qualified. Candidates nominated by the screening and nominating committee will become official officer candidates and each will answer two impromptu questions on stage. If there are no qualified candidates, the office will be left vacant.
