Monday, March 23, 2015

Lincoln-Way North High Schools Student Council will host its 6th Annual Mr. & Miss Phoenix Talent Show on Saturday, March 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium. Tickets are sold during lunch for $5 and proceeds go toward scholarships for Lincoln-Way North seniors.

Five senior boys and five senior girls were nominated for the Talent Show by their peers. Contestants model casual wear, formal wear, perform a talent and answer a final question as part of the pageant-style competition.

This is a really popular event with our students because its an opportunity for them to put on a show and compete for scholarship money, said Jason Pearson, Student Council Advisor at Lincoln-Way North. In previous years, the Talent Show has sold out. Students like to get creative with their talent acts and the winners enjoy being crowned Mr. and Miss Phoenix.

Winners are selected by a combination of faculty judges and text message voting by the audience.

Winners of Mr. and Miss Phoenix each receive a $500 scholarship as well as free Prom tickets. The eight remaining contestants each receive a $250 scholarship. Phoenix TV will be selling DVD copies of the show.

Mr. Phoenix candidates include Ryan Arthur, Josh Mutter, Alex Maksymiak, Jack McGuire, and Robbie Harrington. Miss Phoenix candidates include Mal Moran, Bree Zyer, Marisa Harrison, Laura Wolf, and Kylie Snyder.
