One girl speaks before the class with several good ideas on how class time could be improved and how she could lead the class to learn more. The second little girl stands up and promises all of the kids’ free ice cream, with no regard for who will deliver it, who will pay for it, what flavors or anything. The second little girl wins by a landslide when votes are counted.
