Two of our favorite L-S spring events are joining forces this year for one night of fun. The Pioneer of the Year competition (formerly Mr. Pioneer) and the K-12 Talent for Change talent show will be held together on Saturday, April 7, at 7pm in the PAC. The event is organized by the L-S HS PTO and the L-S Model UN. Proceeds benefit the L-S Post Prom & Spring Blast and Doctors Without Borders.

Eight members of the Class of 2019 will compete for the title of Pioneer of the Year

The Pioneer of the Year competition consists of three rounds: formalwear, beachwear, and interviews. A panel of L-S celebrity judges will evaluate the contestants based on pre-determined criteria. A combination of judges' scores and People's Votes ($1 votes purchased at school and during intermission) will be used to determine the 2018 Pioneer of the Year. The winner will receive a front row parking spot for his or her senior year, two 2019 prom and post-prom tickets, a 2018-2019 spirit pass for admission to district events, and a breakfast in homeroom. A portion of the People's Vote proceeds will be given to the winner's sponsoring club or organization.
