This fall, the Sequoyah high school Small Events Stewardship Committee got into the spirit of Halloween by hosting an advisory pumpkin design contest. Each advisory was given a pumpkin and asked to decorate it. On October 29th, the Friday before Halloween, the pumpkins were judged.
Each advisory produced a pumpkin; there were four from the freshman and sophomore advisories, three from the juniors, and two from the seniors. Once the pumpkins were judged, three winners were chosen.
The pumpkins were judged by Sequoyah administrators from both the K8 and high school campuses. Hannah’s Freshman advisory decorated the third place pumpkin, inspired by Studio Ghibli’s animated film My Neighbor Totoro.
For first place, there was a tie between Lindsey Graham’s senior advisory and Aimee Zvinakis’s junior advisory. Lindsey’s advisory’s pumpkin (also known as a Mumpkin), was a pumpkin with Marc Alongi’s face on the front and a sickly COVID-19 infested face on the back. The advisory dressed the pumpkin in a pink button down shirt–a reference to Alongi’s notorious coral wardrobe–and, of course, gray pants. Aimee’s advisory’s pumpkin was Scooby-Doo themed with the Scooby-Doo gang running along the sides. Most impressive of all, the Scooby-Doo pumpkin glowed in the dark!
Overall, each of the pumpkins was unique and special in its own way! The creativity of the final pumpkins shows that all students had a lot of fun designing and decorating in their advisories. Be sure to take a look at the top three pumpkins below!
