Annual Lip Sync Contest Is Charitable Fun This Saturday


On Feb. 18, Rim Country students will perform at the fourth annual Lip Sync Contest.

The doors of the Payson High School Auditorium will open at 5:30 p.m. and the show begins at 6:45 p.m. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for students.

Sponsored by the Rotary, Kiwanis and Rim Country Optimists clubs, the proceeds will fund scholarships for higher education.

“The highest we’ve raised is $6,000,” said Joan Young, public relations for the Optimists Club.

Ticket sales and donations fund one large scholarship from the three combined clubs.

Silent auction sales go toward funding scholarships for the individual clubs.

“I have 30 silent auction items in my home to take over to the event,” she said.

Eleven different acts are scheduled. The Rim Country Middle School drama club will open the show and the Alchesay High School thespians, (former Payson High School principal Ray Sandoval’s school), will perform the final act of the show.

The winner of the first Lip Sync Contest, past Payson student Troy Walen, will emcee the concert.

Young started the Lip Sync Contest four years ago after hearing about the idea from her friends the Krolls as a fund-raising opportunity.

When the Krolls lived in Wisconsin, they ran a very successful event that drew in students from all parts of the school, from the athletic department to the drama department.
