Pictured above are the five runners up from Winter Carnival 2019. After the pageant was over everyone who participated were allowed to celebrate the new winners at St. Nicholas Hall with friends and family. “I’m honestly so disappointed that Winter Carnival was canceled. It’s completely unnecessary to take away all of the fun things that you can only experience so many times during high school. First winter prom and now this, it’s just so frustrating and uncalled for. You could easily take precautions and still continue with doing the pageant. I know of so many girls that were looking forward to it, even I was and I’m not even allowed to run this year. It was my favorite opportunity that I received my junior year and being named Miss Congeniality was something so special to me. The memories I made with all of my friends were unforgettable and to have a once in a lifetime chance to participate as a junior being taken away just upsets me,” said senior Greta Snukis.
