Before COVID-19, the annual Mr. FHN competition was a staple of the year. Full of dancing, comedy, suits and songs, the light-hearted pageant full of upperclassmen boys drew crowds of students to donate to their chosen charities. But when the pandemic shut down schools last March, Mr. FHN was pitched into a virtual competition via social media. This year, StuCo is continuing this trend of a virtual Mr. FHN for safety measures, and they’re taking to Instagram. 

Each day, Mr. FHN contestants are given a challenge: things like the craziest outfit or best drawing using only one continuous line. The seven contestants’ entries are posted to StuCo’s Instagram account (@stucofhn), and from there, students can go here to find the Google Form and vote for the contestant they think won the challenge. The winner will be announced Friday, Mar. 19. All donations go to one charity – Every Child’s Hope – and students can donate to the cause on Mr. FHN’s GoFundMe page

“Since we’re raising money for one combined cause, it’s a lot easier to manage,” StuCo president Caroline Blanke said. “And that’s really helpful with COVID-19.”
