2nd Annual Turkey in Disguise Contest

by Crystal Weishaupl

November 25, 2020

November means it is time for Thanksgiving and all of the lessons and activities that go along with the holiday.  Last year, my students enjoyed our Turkey in Disguise contest so much, I just had to do it again this year.  Turkeys in Disguise is actually an idea that stems from an amazing children’s book Turkey Trouble.  If you do not have a copy of the book at home, a quick Google search will allow you to watch a reading of it online.  

This year we invited Mrs. Pounds 3rd and 4th grade class to join in on the fun and her students did not disappoint!  In all, we had 14 student entries for our 2nd Annual Turkey in Disguise Contest at Miltonvale Grade School.  The teachers even got their creative juices flowing and made some awesome disguises as well. 

The turkey disguises ranged from Donald Trump to Men in Black.  After all students submitted their entries, the four elementary teachers chose four finalists.  The finalists’ turkeys were then placed in the cafeteria for the junior high and high school students to vote for a winner.  I also asked the staff to vote for their favorite disguise.  Once all the votes were counted (and recounted) we had our winners! The student body winner was Mason Williams with his Barbie inspired Donald Trump disguise.  The staff pick winner was Lillian Rogers with her beautiful Christmas tree disguise.  Honorable mentions were given to Ellen Padgette for her VSCO Girl disguise and Jacob Clairmont for his Chicken Pox disguise!  All of the students, and staff, did a great job showing off their creativity and artistic skills.  This is a contest the students really enjoy and we hope to make it annual tradition at Miltonvale Grade School.  From all of us at MGS, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
