CHILLICOTHE - Pickaway-Ross Career & Technology Center recently held its annual Pickaway-Ross Idol competition at the school.
Champions were a band named Bovicide, including PRCTC students Christian Rinehart, Mitchell Ely, Dakota Simpson and Casey Vinings (all from Huntington). Band members who are not students are Ryan Meeks and Matt Ely.
Courtney Fries and Ashley Waugh, both of Huntington, won second place with a dance mash-up.
Third place went to Greg Shope of Chillicothe with an original comedy routine. Shope was the 2011 PRCTC Idol champion.
Lacy Brown of Paint Valley came in fourth, reciting an original poem.
The fifth-place winner was Brandon Burgett of Logan Elm, who sang an original composition.
The event raised nearly $1,000 for the Pickaway-Ross Teacher’s Association Scholarship Fund. Half the money raised came from a donation from the Circleville Herald, and publisher Steve Davies was a judge for the event.
