Nicholas county high school had their first Christmas door decorating competition on December 13, 2019. Mrs. Lusk, student council advisor, came up with the idea along with her student council to host the competition. “We wanted to bring some Christmas Spirit to the school and get as many students involved as we could,” Mrs. Lusk stated.
For the first competition, the student council invited two Board of Education members to help judge the doors: Board of Education President Gus Penix and member Libby Coffman. The other two judges were former teacher at NCHS Bill Anderson and secretary Ann Lanham.
Mr. Jarvis added to the competition; he hosted an online competition where he posted pictures of the doors onto Facebook, and anyone could “like” the picture of their favorite door to cast their vote. The door with the most “likes” by midnight on December 18 won.
Many kids had an amazing time decorating the doors. “I had a great time being able to collaborate with my peers to work on our door,” said senior Riley Butcher.
The winner of the in-school competition was Mrs. Nutter’s first period and was announced on December 13, 2019. They had an almost perfect score of 9.75 from the four judges for their “Nutter’s Lane” themed hall and door. The winner of the online competition was Mrs. Cox’s first period with their “Starry Night Nativity”; they received 296 votes, which was about 80 votes more than the nearest competition.
