Pageant season is in full swing. Whether audiences watched the Miss America pageant or enjoy the TLC series Toddler's and Tiaras, everyone seems to love a little friendly competition, including 11 brave Emmaus senior boys.
On Jan. 30, the Student Government Association held their second annual "Mr. Emmaus" competition in the Emmaus High School auditorium. The audience was comprised of students and parents anxiously waiting to see the boys "strut their stuff" on the stage.
