Held on April 18, 2015 in the Davis High School auditorium, the Mr. Dart Pageant returned again to the school.

“In the past the assembly was for the debate team and other things. It used to be during the day and it was one of the most fun assemblies, but it would always run over so the teachers got it cut. But 6 years ago I thought let’s bring it back for a night-time thing,” Teacher Ms. Hyer said.

This year the pageant was aimed at helping the school in raising money for a worthy cause.

“This year the pageant is a fundraiser, and the money raised will be donated to the LLS fundraiser, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” Hyer said.

The pageant has a list of planned events that seek to entertain the audience and invite students to attend the assembly to raise the wanted money for the fundraiser.

“The First thing we have is a best legs contest, so we raise the curtains just below the knees and all the contestants shows off their legs for points. The next thing they do is a group dance. The third thing they are judged on is their talent, so we have crazy and unique talents, its not the average play a piano solo. And lastly we have evening wear and interview questions,” Hyer explained.

Every club had the opportunity to nominate a student to compete in the pageant. A total of 13 students participated in the pageant. The winner of the pageant received a free ticket to Prom and the title of Mr. Dart. One of the contestants wins by having the most points in the events and by how many students came out to support them at the pageant. Mrs. Mead and Mrs. Barney count up all the points to calculate who the winner is. And the points are awarded by a panel of judges including Mrs. Gale, Mrs. Olsen, and Mrs. Grant.

With the points counted up Jonah Taylor won Mr. Dartman. Tommy Martineau won first attendant, and Connor Erickson won second attendant.
