Cape Central senior boys had the chance to show their stuff at this year’s Big Man on Campus, and they didn’t disappoint.

Big Man on Campus is an annual event sponsored by Student Senate. It’s basically a beauty pageant infused with comedy and music, all in support of the Safe House for Women. Male seniors are given the opportunity to sign up with a talent and put together an entire performance to put on before the student body. In addition to their talents, the boys also participate in a number of other categories, such as beachwear, formal wear, and a question section. Several adult judges critique the boys in each of the categories and at the end of the night, the winners are announced. Winners receive monetary prizes.

In addition to watching the competitors, audience members can participate in a raffle. Prizes this year included Krispy Kreme coupons, gift cards to Starbucks and Panera, and a $50 Shogun gift certificate.

Here were this year’s contestants:

Russell Allen sang “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker.

Dylan Coonts performed “Cabinet Battle 1” from the musical Hamilton.

Hyrum Dickson sang “You’re Welcome” from the movie Moana.

Ethan Etter played “Satch Boogie” by Joe Satriana on Guitar Hero.

Scott Limbaugh performed “Jingle Bell Rock” from the movie Mean Girls.

Jared Neikirk sang and played guitar to “Kiwi” by Harry Styles.

Kadeem Smith sang and danced to “Dancing Queen” by Abba, which is one of the songs featured in the spring musical, Mamma Mia!

Judged by teachers Logan Bollinger, Crystal Cerny, Katherine Longmeyer, Timothy Stroder, and Angela Womack, the winners were as follows:

First Place – Jared Neikerk

Second Place – Scott Limbaugh

Third Place – Dylan Coonts
