After an absence of one year, the Winter Carnival returned to Lewiston High School. Scheduled activities took place the week of March 10-14. The week was fun for all!

Students who wished to participate enjoyed an afternoon of skiing at a reduced rate when their student ID was shown. A sled race was held after school. Student Council sponsored a raffle for a new DVD player during the week. The winner of the great prize was Mrs. Gardner. The scheduled snow sculpting contest was canceled due to snow consistency.

The high point of the week was when students attended a pep rally on Friday. Others watched from the bleachers as numerous competitions were held. Students sat against the gymnasium wall with their legs at a ninety-degree angle for the Wall Sitting Contest. Upper and lower classmen participated in hula hoop and ice cream eating contests. For an event called the Dizzy Izzy, contestants circled a baseball bat held vertically on the floor several times, and then raced to the far side of the gym. Faculty locked horns with students in a limbo contest and tug-of-war.

The ultimate winter benefit of a snow day resulting in no school did not occur during this week. Yet, Winter Carnival events provided a much needed lift from cabin fever and the winter blahs.
