Oakland Junior High School Political Convention
October 25th 1-4 p.m. Open house
Oakland Junior High School will be hosting a political convention on October 25th from 1 to 4 p.m. Oakland Jr. High’s honor students have each been assigned a local, state or national candidate. These students have researched their candidate’s life, political career and stance on issues. The Political Convention is a time for students to share what they have learned. During the convention, students will give speeches in support of their candidate and will have a booth filled with brochures, a feature article, pictures and fliers promoting their candidate. Many of the candidates will be in attendance. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet and learn about who is running for office this 2012!
