Contestants of the “Rock, Paper, Scissors Competition” competed to win prizes on March 27, 2018 in the library by entering lion loot.

The winners of the competition were Mckenna Pope, Ella Strawmier and Abby Hurincane.

“I was really surprised when I won,” eighth grader Ella Strawmier said.

The winners of the competition received a basket full of candy and the losers recieved condolence prizes.

“It felt great to win because I suck at rock, paper, scissors,” ninth grader Mckenna Pope said.

The competition was set up as a bracket and the winners of each game moved on to compete in the next round.

“For my strategy I just watched what people did, when it wasn’t my turn, and then did the opposite of what they did,” Pope said.

When facing off, Justin Barr held a paper folder in between the contestants to prevent possible cheating.

“I think that kids enjoy this competition because it’s fun to compete with other people,” Strawmier said.

Some classes came down to the library to cheer on the contestants during the competition.

“I think that kids enjoy this competition because you can win it by luck and get food,” Pope said.

Some of the prizes for winners included: Mountain Dew, Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids.

“I like that the school has this competition because I like watching the other grades too and not just competing,” Strawmier said.

When the contestants were not competing they got to sit and watch the other contestants compete.

“I like that the school has this competition because you get to get out of boring classes,” Pope said.

The seventh and eighth graders competition started at 12:30 P.M, and the ninth graders competition started at 1:20 P.M.

The “Rock, Paper, Scissors Competition” goes on every year in March, so be sure to enter some lion loot for a chance to win next year.
