Elevator Speech

I have a career fair coming up and I'm looking for an internship/full time job. At school, they've been saying to make sure you have a good elevator speech prepared before you talk to these companies. I need to "sell myself" but I'm not quite sure how to. I've been googling it but I almost always find things for people that are already established in the business world. I have zero related work experience in my field of study.

My question is, what do recruiters like to hear in an elevator speech knowing that I'm a student with no related work experience? I'm involved in a couple different associations on and off campus. At one of my previous jobs, I held quite a bit of responsibility. When people see my resume, they ask me to tell them about what I did almost 90% of the time.

Any suggestions on what to include that will make the speech short, sweet and impressive?
