Mr. Blue Pony 2014 crowned
February 7, 2014
Havre High School Student Congress organized and hosted their second annual Mr. Blue Pony show Thursday night.
Jamie Lieberg was crowned Mr. Blue Pony 2014 after a grueling competition between peers.
The eleven contestants, after being introduced, had to come on stage dressed as their hero and explain why that person was their hero. There were a couple of Supermen, a Batman and a Robin, but a few came on stage as their fathers or a doctor.
The contestants then had to display a talent. Their talents ranged from singing, playing instruments, "gymnastics" - actually a single, shaky cartwheel - jokes and pick-up lines.
After the talent portion of the event, each Mr. Blue Pony candidate lined up and five were chosen by the judges to compete in the next question round.
Lieberg, in the first round, was dressed as the doctor who treated his mother for cancer and his talent was playing the violin. One of the questions he was asked during the final round was about his favorite childhood memory. His response was visiting his grandmother.
Each contestant was asked why he should be Mr. Blue Pony. Lieberg said he should be Mr. Blue Pony because he faced his fears by getting on stage and competing.
Lieberg was given a $100 Havre Area Chamber of Commerce gift certificate that was donated by the chamber.
Second place went to Spencer Obresley and third went to Ryne Antley.
The masters of ceremonies were Shelbi Brough, Kiana Robertson and Aubrea Worm, all members of student congress, who entertained the audience with very PG-rated jokes.
The proceeds from the show will go to the student congress' general fund for events and projects.
"The main goal of student congress is to make the school a good environment for learning and make school spirit," said Lindsey Manuel-McInerney, the student congress advisor and a world history teacher at the high school.
