50 seniors vying for Homecoming Queen

The Unicoi County High School senior class is looking to have a sweet time with Homecoming 2010, “Willy Wonka’s One Sweet Homecoming.”
The event will be held during halftime at the home football game on Friday, Oct. 15, and gives all the contestants the chance to take home the crown.
The contestants, which represent either their respective clubs, or the senior class, will not only participate in the halftime presentation and crowning during the football game, but will also present a pageant for the community, which will help to introduce the contestants to the community.
To commemorate the annual event, UCHS will have specially coordinated dress-up days through the week.
On Monday students will dress as their favorite character from books movies, games, etc.
Tuesday will be Monster Day where students will dress as their favorite monstrous character from zombies to Frankenstein. Students will also have an in-school volleyball game between the classes and faculty. That evening will be School Spirit Day at Walmart from 5 to 8 p.m. at the UCHS senior parking lot.
On Wednesday students will dress in the most tacky clothing they can come up with on Tacky Day. Candidates will also participate in Vespers service at Gentry Stadium that evening.
Thursday will be Change Your Style Day where students will wear something that is a totally different style than they normally do. There will also be a pep rally during school.
Friday will be Blue and White Spirit Day where students will deck out in the school’s colors to show their spirit.
The homecoming pageant will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, and the crowning ceremony will be during halftime at the football game on Friday, Oct. 15.
The game begins at 7:30 p.m. at Gentry Stadium and the parade down Love Street begins at 6:30 p.m.
