On Saturday, March 7, Linganore High School is holding their 21st annual Mr. Linganore competition: Men of Vision.

Mr. Linganore is a competition where senior guys compete with one another performing their different talents and acts. At the end, the winner will be chosen by the seven judges and they will be crowned Mr. Linganore 2020.

The contestants for this year are Jacob Blue, Luke Goundry, Jeremey Hilton, David Kominars, Jack Maerten, Max Ross, and Braden Weinel. 

There is an entrance portion where each contestant will walk on stage in the persona that they are portraying. Next, there will be a talent section where contestants will be performing a talent of their choice and try to impress the audience and judges. 

Later on, there will be a formal wear section where each contestant will come out with their escort to promote Deja Vu Boutique.  The Mount Airy company is sponsoring all of the tuxedos.

The contestants will also perform a ballroom dance. This year’s dance is the samba, choreographed by Linda Sanders.  Sanders has been choreographing the dances for more than 10 years.

Like a real beauty contest, there is a question/answer section.

At the very end of the show, the field will be narrowed to three, and then the judges will rank them first, second and third based on a final questions

Noah Price, who was last year’s winner for Mr. Linganore said “I was very surprised when I was crowned Mr. Linganore, as everyone was really talented and hard working that night. There was a lot of competition,” when asked how he felt to be Mr. Linganore 2019.

The tickets are on sale now from the contestants. They cost $8.00 in advance and $10.00 at the door. The money that is raised goes to the end of the year awards and helps support the school. 

Braden Weinel said, “It is not about the destination, but about the journey and gaining a better understanding of that. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, you develop growth and friendships along the way”

Attending Mr. Linganore is a great way to show your support for the school and the contestants. You will get to see everyone’s amazing talents and see them have so much fun on stage. It’s something you don’t want to miss.
