Who has the best Turkey Face?
A play-by-play of the 2015 AMHS Turkey Face Painting Competition
November 20, 2015
Thanksgiving is gobbling up the news! Everyone loves a good turkey; even the vegans, but they prefer theirs living! With the momentous occasion drawing nearer, we decided to celebrate this time of family and joy with none other than a friendly competition. Contestant pairs Nick Carter/Amber Thomas, Maddie Claire Proctor/Hallie Roerden, and Ethan Carter/Mika Sakamoto participated in a long standing Academic Magnet Turkey Tradition known as the TFPC: Turkey Face Painting Competition. The battle was no easy feat, and painters Nick, Maddie Claire, and Ethan fought hard to obtain the title of Champion. Using canvases Amber, Hallie, and Mika, the artists labored tirelessly to paint the best turkey onto their willing partners. Decorating with the utmost care and coloring faster than the 55 mph a turkey can fly, the painters worked their hardest to create true turkey masterpieces. In the beginning, it looked as though Ethan and Mika had a chance, but Maddie Claire and Hallie put up a good fight. Unfortunately, like turkeys during Thanksgiving season, Nick and Amber had no hope. Finally, after a grueling battle, Maddie Claire and Hallie came out on top. This competition was stuffed with tension and was by no means as easy as pumpkin pie. Be sure to congratulate the winners, and of course, have a happy Thanksgiving!
