We have everything you need to start a student council In your school. To get started, you will want to order the Leadership Kit, which includes handbooks for advisors and officers, parliamentary procedures, and even a sample constitution. Lapel pins are available for officers during the year and, at the end of the school year, your school may be honored with the Student Council Excellence Award and each student council member may be awarded an Honor Council pin. (If your student council wants to be recognized as an Honor Council, click here to download the 2011-12 application.)
The Dream! Reach! Succeed! pins are a great way to recognize and encourage students to be caring and productive citizens throughout the year or at the end of the school year ceremony.
