Student Council will add a twist to this year’s Homecoming by holding the Spirit Cup competition for students and staff members.

Senior Cole Zemore, Student Council president, said the group wanted to make school pride a contest.

“We are making it an actual competition for the Spirit Cup trophy instead of a class just getting bragging rights,” Zemore said.

Teams will consist of the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes, as well as staff members.

The competition will not change the overall structure of Homecoming, but will create a contest out of its traditional components.

“The competition is putting all of the things we’ve done in the past for homecoming week and adding a few more events,” Zemore said.

In order to win the trophy, each team must earn points by taking an active role in homecoming events.

Some ways to earn points include the coin clash, a new event where students fill jars with coins for their classes. Teams can subtract from opponents’ totals by stuffing paper money into the jars.

The money raised in the coin clash will go toward next year’s Homecoming.

Another event is the Community Closet drive, which aims to raise donations for Student Council’s Community Closet.

Participation in each spirit day will also contribute to a team’s point total depending on the percentage of students or staff members who dress up.

(The Spirit Cup competition) is a great opportunity for students and staff to show spirit in an exciting way and it is something students and staff will look forward to each year.”

— Mr. Mike Whalen, Student Council adviser

Points can also be earned by winning the powder puff championship and for winning the pep assembly held Monday, Oct. 7.

Senior Skyelar Herriman, Student Council communications officer, said getting students involved in spirit activities helps their classes gain points and get closer to winning the Spirit Cup.

“There are a lot of ways to get involved,” Herriman said. “There will be a list going out with everything the students (can do) to get involved like participating in spirit days or (being) the winner of each game at the homecoming assemblies.”

Mr. Mike Whalen, Student Council adviser, hopes the competition is a successful event for years to come.

“(The Spirit Cup competition) is a great opportunity for students and staff to show spirit in an exciting way,” Whalen said, “and it is something students and staff will look forward to each year.”

Student Council will also hold the Spirit Cup competition during Snowcoming.
