Will the Dino be the Best Mascot?


With less than two days left of voting, the Carbon High Dino is currently in second place for America’s most unique high school mascot.

The contest being conducted by USA Today High School Sports has narrowed the campaign to the top six schools and currently the Dino is in the the running for the grand prize. Although numbers change instantly, it is a battle against the local high school and the Centralia Orphans from Illinois.

Carbon advanced to the finals by winning the first round which featured 51 high schools from across the United States. With help from current students, staff, alumni and local residents, the Dino is moving in for the kill. If the school wins the contest, the athletic department will receive $2,000. The second place school will be issued $1,000.

To ensure that the award comes to Carbon High, students ask that anyone and everyone with internet access vote for the big blue dinosaur. There is no limit on how many votes a person can cast. In fact, several students were voting on two computers at one time at the high school Monday afternoon.

Winners will be determined Wednesday at 1 p.m. when polls officially close.
