My high school school newspaper needs advertising and they are on a budget crisis right now and in debt. (Administration cut funding). I'm supposed to help the newspaper out money wise, and I thought of a great idea of running a Ron Paul advertisement on there! I'm only a high school senior so I don't have the money, but the reach is to 4,000+ students, 1,000 students are eligible to vote later on (high school seniors) and there are hundreds of staff and teachers.

Also, don't forget the students can tell their parents his views and so forth. It only costs $300 for a full page ad and that's what I'm aiming for!

$20 also gets a business card sized ad, so I don't really need that much money to put up an ad.

I hope you can help, I will scan the ad when the next issue comes out!

Oh, and for your information, I come from Chicago and attend Lane Technical College Prep. I'm a high school senior. :)

Thanks!

$300 for 1000 voters that wont show up to the primary.. Ahem... I really don't mean to be negative but I don't find it to be the most worthy investment... I think the $20 is a much better idea...

I think running the full page Llepard ad would be great for $300 to reach that many people.

Can you get an established poster to vouch for you? I'm sure your local MeetUp has someone.

Thanks for the support. I am currently trying to contact the greater chicago meetup group and let's see how it goes!

also don't forget that if they'll be 18 by Nov. 5, they can vote in the Primary (i think that's true)

if there is a meetup arnd your area you should contact them about this. since the audience is high school students i suggest an ad that sends one powerful message and not a detailed one.
