A-Blast Annual Halloween Costume Contest

The A-Blast is sponsoring their annual Halloween costume contest. The Contest will be held during school on Oct. 28th. 

To participate in the contest, students must have their photo taken by a staff member of the A-Blast in the cafeteria before class, during second breakfast or during grab and go lunch as the contest takes place on a two hour early release for the end of the quarter. 

If you don’t get the chance to have your photo taken or would like to take the photo of yourself, students can also submit a head to toe photo of themselves against a clean background by DM’ing the A-Blast instagram account (@the_ablast) by the end of the day. 

Photos from the contest will be featured in a slideshow on the A-Blast Website and instagram. The contest is a great opportunity for students and staff to prepare for the weekend of festivities. Not only is dressing up a great way to celebrate but 

the contest also allows a  chance for enjoying and admiring peers and staff’s creative costumes.

Flyers have been posted around the school advertising the contest.      

The Costume Contest is a festive tradition that is anticipated by students and staff every season.

“It’s a fun way for students and staff to get to know each other. I love seeing the creative costumes people come up with and I never miss a chance to make a fool of myself,” English teacher Kathleen Mathis said.

The Contest is for student participation but teachers dress up too.“I like that it (the costume contest) gives students a chance to express themselves creatively and I like trying to scare my students,” History teacher Matthew O’Neil said.

Some students don’t care about the contest and dress up just to enjoy the holiday festivities.

“It’s my last year so I have to make it fun,” said Senior Frank Cordova-Ferrufino. “I’m not trying to win, I’m just dressing up for fun,”.

Students are encouraged to wear their costumes to school that morning of the 28th provided that their costumes adhere to the contest rules as well as the rules of the school dress code.
