When walking around Roosevelt during the Holiday Basket week, many students would notice the festive (or sometimes not) decorations hung on and around advisory doors. So what’s the big deal with the Door Decoration Competition anyways?
Operation Holiday Basket has been a long lasting holiday tradition at Roosevelt. Ever since 1970, students would work together with their advisories to collect money and canned goods to donate to families in need of food over the winter holidays.
Many students greatly enjoy Operation Holiday Basket, saying that it is one of their favorite weeks of the whole school year. A big part of the excitement is from the Door Decoration Competition. It is a chance to collaborate with your peers to show holiday spirit.
“I enjoy the sense of comradery and community,” freshman Sandy Bolton states when inquired about what makes the door decorating fun for her. “We’re all really determined to win and that’s made us work together more.”
At the end of the Holiday Basket week, judges would walk around the hallways and determine the best decorated door. The advisory whose door was deemed the best would win a pizza party.
This year’s winning advisories were a tie between Mr. Salzer and Mr. Savstrom, meaning Mr. Salzer’s advisory win the contest two years in a row.
