    Prefect Season 1887!
    #1
    Prefect Selection 1887

    Prefect Season is my FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR, and as such I hope everyone applies who is remotely qualified applies!

    ABOUT STUDENT STAFF
    Hogwarts' student staff serve as role models for their fellow students.  Additionally, they reinforce/penalize good and bad behaviour by issuing and taking away house points. In addition to prestige, prefects receive half of their tuition and heads all of their tuition in exchange for their efforts. They also get to use the prefects’ toilets because that is clearly a selling point.

    TRAITS:
    Optionalish. If your application does not include a written personality, please list at least four traits. At least two must be negative. If your application does have a written personality, you may omit this field. This is scored IC and OOC.

    This year, faculty recommendations will be handled privately, NOT via the prefect apps.

    ACTIVITY LOG:
    Optional. Reassure the staff team that your character’s been active! You can link to any of the following:
    • All active threads set at Hogwarts.
    • All completed threads set at Hogwarts.
    • All dead threads set at Hogwarts if you were the last person to post in them.
    • Any completed homework assignments.
    • Any class threads you’ve posted in, even if they’ve died.
    • Any quidditch matches you’ve posted in.
    • Any club meetings you’ve posted in, even if they’ve died.
    Someone with a terrible personality won’t get cleared just because they’ve been more active, but activity is still a factor for us! You should only link threads from the 1886-1887 school year. Scored OOC only.

    Your activity log is in addition to any evidence of behaviours/involvement found in the “why should you be prefect” section.

    To apply, make sure your character meets the demographic in question (IE sixth year ravenclaw female should be a female student in Ravenclaw house who will be in sixth year in September) and has at least 25 posts on their account. Charaters approved from March 1st to May 14th only need 15 posts on their account, and characters approved on or after May 15th only need five posts on their account—so you’re welcome to make a character to fit the bill ;) You must post the form below as a reply to this thread from the account in question.

    Code:
    [b]Character Name:[/b] Please include application link.
    [b]Applying For:[/b] What position do you want?
    [b]Class & Blood Status:[/b] Public perception, please. Don’t tell me half-veela if your character is perceived as a muggleborn or something xD
    [b]Traits:[/b] Optionalish. See above for details.

    [b]Why Should You Be Prefect:[/b]<blockquote>An IC-meets-OOC explanation. We know that not all characters would try to talk themselves up, but if they were trying to, what would they say? Linking to posted evidence can give you a much-needed boost! Threads from previous school years may be included here as evidence!</blockquote>

    All listed years are incoming—if your character just finished their fifth year, they can apply for sixth year posts. All positions for upper-year prefects will be retconned to your character having held the spot since their fifth year, and in applying, you consent to this.

    Don’t have a qualifying student? There’s an app for that!

    Applications for the sixth and seventh year prefects officially close on July 5th at noon EST. Applications for fifth year prefects, Head Boy, and Head Girl close on July 15th at noon EST. You may continue to edit your application as long as it remains visible on this page!

    Confused? Please post below with any questions you might have, or fire a PM to this account. You can also check out some of last year’s applications! Only a small sampling is available for view.

    Why Should You Be Prefect:
    I believe that I am the suitable choice for Head Boy not only because I exemplify the traits of a Gryffindor, but also because I've demonstrated the qualities of a leader. I care about my fellow students and frequently encourage them to participate in activities beyond the walls of the classroom. I also make an effort to assist them when they show signs of struggle inside and outside the classroom.

    While my grades may only be decent compared to some of the more academically-inclined students, I make a great effort to participate in class (1, 2) and take initiative regarding my future by attending career counseling and securing a summer internship.

    I also serve as the male president of both the Dueling Club and the Leisure Sports Club, and I also earned the position of keeper on Gryffindor's quidditch team.

    Apart from my academic and extracurricular achievements, I also show leadership qualities at home. With the absence of a father in the household, I take on primary responsibility for my five younger siblings while my mother works during the summer. I have always been unprejudiced and judge individuals based on their character rather than their socioeconomic class or blood status.

    Why Should You Be Prefect:
    As hufflepuff prefect for the last 2 years I have taken my role very seriously, and have been deeply honoured by the trust and responsibility placed on me. I have done all that I can to prove myself worthy of the head girl badge and believe that I set a good example for all of the girls in the school. I try to conduct myself in a way that lets all girls know that class background is no excuse for poor behaviour, poor morals, or poor results. I have good test results, good relationships with staff and students, and I have never served a detention in my life, nor have I lost house points, in fact contributing positively through my academic and non-academic endeavours. I work daily to exemplify the best attributes of my house hard work, patience, of loyalty. To that end I am taking a full course load of 7 NEWTs, and should do well in them, as my OWL scores were good enough to secure a partial scholarship to study my NEWTs.

    I believe that I am an approachable and generally a nice person with those less fortunate than myself, and I will undertake distasteful tasks for my housemates, and to prevent their embarrassment, but I still find time to hang out with my dorm mates and socialise so they know they can come to me with anything. I also rescued the Minister of Magics daughter from a Boggart, and faced my own worst fears in doing so.


    I try to give attention and notice to all of my dorm mates, from helping first years and assisting on the Hogwarts Express and checking girls from every class for lice.

    As President of the Charms club I have helped students from multiple houses with their wandwork, and tutored students from other houses on a one to one basis. I have also been active in the student duelling club taking part tournaments throughout the year (1,2,3,4,5,6), and doing reasonably well in all of them, I was defeated in the semi final by a current 7th year in the last round.

    I have been diligent in my class attendance in particular Gobbledegook class and DADA . I have also attended extra DADA tuition, and submitted Homework for my classes.

    Outside of class I have engaged in independent study in Potions , charms, transfiguration and DADA

    Even while enjoying myself I still found time to set an example and attend my perfectly duties. I have attempted to an active, and visible prefect on campus, in the hopes that students from any house might feel comfortable talking to me. I am currently interning at the Wizengemot.

    Why Should You Be Prefect:
    I am the most suitable candidate for head girl because in my two years of being prefect I have shown that I am responsible to carry out  my duties ( 1 ) and I can assure you that I have the qualities of a leader since I am also the president of the astronomy club.

    I am approachable and always ready to give a helping hand to other students ( 1, 2 )especially when it comes to their studies ( 1 , 2 ) as well as boosting their confidence ( 1). I have never cared much about blood and class, what matters to me is the what they are on the inside ( 1 , 2 , 3).

    I am also frequently participate in all of the school events like the yearly dueling tournament ( 1 , 2 , 3  ) and even if I have not passed the first round, I turn my defeat into determination which I used in enhancing my wandwork. Other than that, I am active in all of my clubs ( 1 , 2 ) especially the astronomy club.

    I show the traits of a perfect role model for young girls, ladylike, graceful, studious ( 1, 2, 3) and smart (1 ). Not only that, I have the ambition to serve my fellow wizards and witches by working for the ministry as I have always admired working women such as Josephina Flint, Astrid Parkinson and Belphoebe Lestrange. As proof of my passion, I regrettably have served internship under Barnabas Skeeter last year ( 1 ).

    Why Should You Be Prefect:
    I'm going to be totally honest here: I'm not exactly the type of person you would consider for prefect. I don't pay much attention to my studies, I have a tendency to be rude, I often disturb class and pull pranks, I'm known to get into fights, I rarely follow the rules, and- er... sorry, I forgot where I was going with this. But I did have a point, trust me on that one. A-Anyway, I think I should be made prefect because... well, why not give the underdog a chance, eh?
