Halloween is coming and decorations are popping up everywhere. It seems like from front porches to stores to classrooms, just about everything is covered in spiderwebs, skeletons, and cartoonish bats. Of all the common decour, one seems to stand out. Almost everyone, no matter how much they celebrate the holiday, has at least one carved pumpkin. This year, StuCo has created a fresh new contest based on the Halloween tradition. Students are challenged to carve the coolest, most creative, or creepiest Jack ‘o Lantern they can.

“Basically, you can post a picture of your creation to any social media and add #Lhspumpkin14,” Shannon Sobeck (12) said.

The contest will continue until October 29. StuCo members also hope that the competition will occur in future years.

“We held a snowman contest that was similar last year. That one did not work out that well, but I think this contest will do a lot better,” Maya Makarun (10) said.

There will also be cool prizes for the students that carve the first, second, and third best pumpkins.

“The prizes are to be determined, but we [STUCO] will vote as a class and decide on the winners together,” Sobeck said.

This fun opportunity to post and share their Halloween spirit and get rewarded should excite many tech-savvy LHS students. Come join the fun and post your own pumpkin photo today!
