In November, the contest of Mx HOL started. The contest was a HOL wide contest, with winning titles such as Mx HOL, Mx Gryffindor, Mx Hufflepuff, Mx Ravenclaw, Mx Slytherin, and Mx Congeniality. All the contestants went through four rounds, judged by the population of HOL and the five Mx Judges.
In Round One, 19 contestants applied to become Mx HOL. They had to answer a series of questions and show off their talent. We saw a wide range of talents including talents such as signing, playing the piano, drawing, and sewing. In the popular vote Shiloh dazzled everyone with her amazing singing and guitar playing talent, getting seven votes, with Blade J. Johnson and Zenix James coming in second with four votes each.
We soon learned the judging results. The judges' favorite turned out to be Ravariel Aiwince who bewitched them with detailed answers and her beautiful drawings, she got 448 points. Next, Shiloh Adlar and Vanessa Tilley tied for second with 437 points from the judges. Therefore, at the end of Round One the standings were as follows; In first place was Shiloh Aldlar with 487 points, in second place was Ravariel Aiwince with 462 points, and in third was Vanessa Tilley with 451 points.
And now Round Two was upon us. All contestants had to do something for house pride and talk about a topic that really touched them. They also had to answer some audience questions. Gail Allen, Shiloh Adlar, and Ravariel Aiwince dominates the popular vote. Sadly, five people were cut this round because they didn’t submit their work on time. The judges' favorite in Round Two was Shiloh Adlar, and for the total points Shiloh dominated with a strangely square number: 999.
In Round Three contestants had the most fun with a website to build and some questions about community Service to answer. The HOL favorites this round were Gail Allen and Shadow Gaunt, with Gail Allen dazzling the crowd with her self made website. The judges' favorite however was Gail Allen, thus taking over Shiloh in the points. It was beginning to seem like a very close race.
And lastly, Round Four. Many questions were to be answered, all tailored to the contestants specifically. Some were extremely hilarious. Here, the popular vote split again between Shiloh Adlar, Gail Allen, and Ravariel Aiwince. Everyone’s tensions were running high to see the judges' favorite and ultimate winner. And unexpected favorite arose: Amanda P.X.Sim.
And yet, the final winner was Gail Allen. The titles of Mx Hufflepuff, Mx Gryffindor, Mx Slytherin, and Mx Ravenclaw were awarded to Ravariel Aiwince, Amanda P.X.Sim, Will Lestrange, and Shiloh Adlar respectively. The title of Miss Congeniality was awarded to Prof. Zoki Phantom. Everyone did an amazing job and the judges were wonderful. Mx HOL was truly an extremely fun contest to participate in and to watch.
