Costume contest for children 

There was a costume contest which were divided in three age groups. There was a zero-five age group, six-ten age group, and 11-15 age group. The children would line up and members of Student Life got to vote one of five categories: scariest, funniest, most creative, cutest, and best overall which spanned over all age groups according to said President of the Student Senate Udell Holmes. Prizes for the contest included candy bags and certificates.“It turned out really well, great costumes here. Hope to see it grow, it was a lot of fun,” said Holmes.
