Political education for novice voters has tended to be dominated by the delivery of formal information both directly and indirectly. This condition often feels boring and ineffective in exploring creative ideas that characterize novice voters. The presence of the student democracy jamboree program initiated by the General Election Commission (KPU) of Padang City for the socialization of regional elections is an alternative to present more intensive, creative and participatory political education. This article aimed to elaborate the students’ democracy jamboree program and also adopt the value of participatory education so that the political education can be more transformative. This research uses a qualitative approach. The data was collected through documentary studies, depth interviews, and focus group discussions (FGD). The results of this study illustrated that the implementation of the student democracy jamboree program has been succeeded in creating new creativity in teaching elections and democracy even though there are still some lacks in their implementation and evaluation.
