Senior Legacy Projects become competitive for cash

-- Minarets High School correspondentMay 22, 2013 

Minarets High School's Senior Legacy Experiences are the culminating projects for Minarets seniors. The purpose of the senior legacies is to choose an area to focus and leave something new behind for the school and community, or expand on something already existing on campus or in the community.

All seniors present the final results to one another during senior graduation meetings. Then, the best are chosen to come back and present them to the public for cash prizes. This year, 11 projects were chosen to compete at the Senior Legacy Experience Showdown.

The following is a list of the winners:

$500 winners

Jarred Crossley and Kevin Glazener -- Senior Legacy Video Production.
