Sophomores Win First Annual Class Commercial Competition Homecoming 2015

     The first annual themed class commercial competition was held during home coming week at OHS in conjunction with Eagle Olympics. The theme was: "Why is your class the Best Class."     

     This idea was spearheaded by senior leader and student council president, Andrew Burival. Andrew wanted to see change brought to the spirited week of festivities that take place during homecoming week at OHS. For years past classes were given time during the school day to decorate their respective hallways. The hallways were then judged and points awarded to classes with the best decorated hallways. Andrew said, “Let’s do away with this tradition and have a 21st century competition-- after all we are an Apple Distinguished School!" Second year principal Corey Fisher replied, "Who can argue with that?"So he turned it over to Andrew, the class sponsors, and the students in grades 9-12.

     Students took the bull by the horns. Each class wasgiven approximately 90 minutes from start to finish to plan, record and edit their commercials. To kick off Eagle Olympics each commercial was played for the student body and judged by a panel of judges. Spirit points were awarded based on places received in the commercial competition. Guidelines are listed below. All in all this was a great event, and a great way showcase the creativity, leadership and "can-do" attitude of students here at OHS!     

      Congratulations to the Sophomore class for 
their first place finish in this years event!  We all
can't wait to watch this event cultivate in the
