HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Each year Oakcrest High School student council sponsors a Halloween costume contest as part of spirit week activities that both students and staff participate in.
Students from Fran Campbell’s wood tech classes volunteered to construct pumpkin awards for the winners of the costume contest. This is the second year students from wood tech classes cut out and made the pumpkin awards.
The students made a total of 25 awards. Each award was hand-lettered with the costume category. There were awards for best female and male costume from each grade, best student group and best teacher group, best duo, most original costume and best teacher costume.
The students were quick to volunteer and get involved. Students cut the pumpkin shapes out using the band saw and used both the table saw and miter saw to cut the bases.
“It was fun to make the pumpkins and paint them,” freshman Davon Robinson said.
