“Neon Color Bomb” will be the theme of the 2014 Junior Prom, which will be held from 8:30 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 10, in the Iola-Scandinavia High School Commons.
“We will be using different colored neon lights everywhere,” said junior Holly Boyle. “We will also have black lights hanging up when we are dancing and there will be neon colors splattered on paper.”
“In the auditorium we will have a New York skyline made out of cardboard and neon colors,” said Boyle. “We have all worked very hard preparing for this and it will pay off for a great night of fun.”
Prior to the event, Just Rusty’s at Glacier Woods will be hosting the Junior Class Dinner from 6-8 p.m.
The 2014 prom court includes Claire Bestul and Tanner Krusa, Lindsey Bloom and Evan Fuhs, Holly Boyle and Marshall Taylor, Michelle Ellie and Nick Madson, Brianne Heuttner and Logan Inderdahl, Jane Oligney and Ryan Melum.
Kylie Johnson and Chase Przybylski will serve as mistress and master of ceremonies, while Sydney Bestul and Mason Kriessel are the miniature queen and king.
Families are invited to join the students at 9 p.m. in the high school auditorium for crowning of the queen and king.
The Iola Lioness will host a Post Prom Party from midnight until 4 a.m. Ticket prices are $5 per student.
“Per request of the junior class, this year’s entertainment will be a magic and illusion show provided by Glen Gerard,” said Lioness Ryan Kriewaldt.
“Games include Flip Your Lid Gladiator Jousting, Screamer Slide, Bungee Basketball, Human Bowling, Black Jack, Twister, Bingo and more,” she said.
