Dating back to the 1970’s and 80’s with The Price is Right, Jeopardy, and Family Feud – more recent crazes include Do You Want To Be A Millionaire, Deal or No Deal, and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.All of these game shows have a few things in common – contestants, a host, prizes, challenges, anticipation, and humor.If possible have the event in a carpeted auditorium with stadium seating.Avoid a gym or cafeteria as the noise levels will detract from the event if the audience cannot hear the conversations on stage. Begin advertising 4 to 6 weeks in advance by distributing flyer’s to parents of all local schools and hanging flyers in visible locations at the school.
This will sell tickets and keep the audience interested and entertained at the anticipation of being chosen.
Offer tickets for sale and request contestant sign-ups.
Encourage every student to purchase a ticket, encourage parents to purchase tickets themselves and to sell to family and friends, and set up sale tables at student pick-up and drop-off locations, in the cafeteria during lunch hours, and at school sponsored events.
Reserve the school auditorium where the game show will take place.
You will need a stage and seating for the audience.
