President of IMAGI-NATION

Have you ever thought about what you might do if you were in charge? How could you use your position to make the world a better and fairer place?

There’s more to being a leader than just having good ideas. You have to be able to communicate these ideas clearly, inspiring others; and you need to have a plan of action for how you’re going to make change happen.

President of IMAGI-NATION is a segment on IMAGI-NATION{TV} that airs on Tuesdays during the ‘Youngsters’ episodes.

Get Involved – Students & Teachers

How does it work?
Every week, students from across the AIME universe are given the stage to deliver a three-minute speech as the President of IMAGI-NATION. They will focus on the topic of the week, and use the space to inspire us all to make sense of the world today so we can imagine the world tomorrow.


How can you participate? 
Students can apply to be the President of IMAGI-NATION by sending submissions to [email protected] and making sure they answer these questions:

  • What would you stand for as the President of IMAGI-NATION?
  • What’s your plan of action?
  • Which of the AIME values align with your dreams and goals for a fairer and better world? And why are these important to you?
  • What makes you stand out from others?


How do the team at IMAGI-NATION{TV} decide who gets to deliver a speech as the President of IMAGI-NATION each week?
The team at IMAGI-NATION{TV} select the Presidents each week. Because this is creative, they have a bit of freedom to look at different criteria, but things that are considered in the selection process include:

  • Imagination – How have you inspired us to imagine a fairer and better tomorrow as the President of IMAGI-NATION?
  • Hope, Change, Freedom – Are these values recognisable in your speech?
  • Brave Goals – What sets you apart as a leader? Do you have a plan?
  • AIME values – How do your ideas align with any of the AIME values?


Share your experiences so we can all learn.
Learning from each other is vital to existing and emerging leaders so we want you to share your experiences. Shout it from the rooftops – let your community know – or even better tag us on social media at #imaginationTV so we can shout for you.



IMAGI-NATION{TV} was created as a response to COVID-19 school closures around the globe but is continuing to hold relevance in the teaching community beyond the pandemic. The daily TV show is broadcast live on the Internet, and it’s a gift for teachers, parents and kids to help make sense of today and imagine tomorrow.

The team at IMAGI-NATION{TV} developed this program to address the problem of how to mentor kids during the school closures. Building on the mentoring program established by Jack Manning Bancroft and the AIME mentoring team, they found a very creative solution. We hope their creativity might inspire you!
