NH Primary Student Convention 2016 Support Levels

The Rally: $10,000
Town Hall Meeting: $5,000
The Diner: $2,500
The House Party: $1,000

The Rally: $10,000

The Rally: By the end of the primary calendar, candidates host rallies filled with their supporters in a final effort to energize the campaign and build momentum for Election Day. These events represent the pinnacle of the campaign. Imagine, thousands of supporters cheering for their candidate filling the largest ballrooms and halls.

Support Benefits: The Rally supporters will have their logos appear side by side with New England College on all Conference related publications. This includes the banner, which will be positioned at the main stage behind keynote, presidential candidates, and plenary speakers throughout the conference. Your logo will also appear on the registration packets, the website, and all mailed materials as time permits. With the widespread media coverage expected, the banner will serve as an excellent opportunity to gain national publicity.

Town Hall Meeting: $5,000

Town Hall Meeting: Nothing says New Hampshire politics like the Town Hall Meeting. Here everyday citizens have the chance to hear from the men and women who would be president and ask them tough questions. And despite the unpredictable nature of the question and questioners, candidates still must hold Town Hall Meetings.

Support Benefits: Town Hall Meeting supporters will have their logos appear on all mailed and printed materials (excluding the banner). Convention patrons are entitled to place an insert in the registration packet, will have booth space reserved for them throughout the four day convention, and may host one evening reception.

The Diner: $2,500

The Diner: By the time primary season rolls around every four years, visits to local diners become regular campaign stops for candidates. Stop in your local diner and you are likely to see pictures of presidential candidates along the counter dining on pancakes with only New Hampshire maple syrup.

Support Benefits: The Diner supporters will have their logos appear on all printed materials (excluding the banner). Convention supporters are entitled to place an insert in the registration packet, will have booth space reserved for them for two days of the convention, and may host one daytime reception.

The House Party: $1,000

The House Party: Early on in the Primary cycle, candidates engage in the most retail style of politics. Meeting in the homes of potential supporters and party activists they shake hands, practice their stump speech and get to know voters and, more importantly, voters get to know the candidates.

Support Benefits: The House Party supporters will have their logos appear on all printed materials (excluding the banner). Convention supporters are entitled to place an insert in the registration packet, and will have booth space reserved for them for one day of the convention
