With “Blitz Day,” and the “Phone-a-thon” behind them, and the final auction booklet printed, junior class officers are finishing up with the final preparations for Junior Auction, which occurs on April 6.
To raise awareness for the auction and to give students a chance to display their class spirit, class officers instituted a competition in which participants take different pictures each day in their Junior Auction T-shirts. Class secretary Bridget Brown ’14 feels that the countdown is a great method of reaching out to her fellow juniors. “We wanted to do a countdown to get people excited for the auction,” she said. “A lot of students thought that the auction wasn’t for them, more a thing for the parents, so we wanted to get them [the students] involved too.”
Class President Adam Chernew ’14 feels that the countdown has certainly achieved Brown’s goal. “Obviously not every kid has participated, but a fair amount have taken at least one picture, and when these pictures are posted on social media, a lot of people see them, and it raises awareness for the auction,” he said. While the first sales will not be made until Saturday, by posting on social media and participating in the countdown, students are already “buying into” the Junior Auction.
