In October 2019, PHS Newspaper Staff will host a Halloween Pet Costume Contest fundraiser. 

To enter, all contestants must pay five dollars. Staff will start taking money on Tuesday, October 15, 2019.

All pets are welcome to enter. Pets can be dressed in any type of costume, including a hotdog, princess, nurse, superman, batman, pumpkin, pirate, ghost, air plane, and more.

Wondering how the contest will work or what the winner’s prize will be? First, pet owners will take a picture of their animal or animals. Next, they will send in a picture of their pet in costume to Mrs. Grice via email. 

You can contact Mrs. Grice at [email protected]s.

The school will vote for the winning pet on October 31st. The pet that receives the most votes will be declared the winner; the prize is a visa card worth fifty dollars. 

For the last fundraiser, newspaper staff sold raffle tickets. Raffle tickets were sold for two dollars each. The lucky person was awarded with six free tickets to the fair, along with a parking pass.

As a result, over four hundred thirty dollars was raised. The winner of the raffle was Sidney Goldman.

Many students are looking forward to the costume contest.  “I think it is a great way for the staff to raise money,” said Allison Weems.
