The Marvin Ridge High School Varsity Dance Team has been named a finalist for the National Spirit Leader Team of the Year Award. Varsity Brands, along with Walt Disney World and the CBS Sports Network (which televises the ceremony in June) will host the annual Spirit Awards Banquet at Walt Disney World in May. The Marvin Ridge Varsity Dance Team was one of sixteen teams chosen from around the country out of thousands of entries. The award ceremony is comprised of twenty-five awards ranging from Most Spirited High School to Most Outstanding Principal to Most Outstanding Athlete. Twenty-four category winners, including Spirit Leader Team of the year, will take home $3,000 and the most spirited high school of the year takes home $25,000. The Spirit Leader team award is given to the team that most represents what a spirit team should be. The judges look at how the team involves itself within the school atmosphere, the community, and how well they maintain a strong academic presence in the classroom. The Marvin Ridge varsity dance team works hard to always bring the best they have to give on the field of play, in their community, and within the classroom and they are proud to share that their overall team GPA exceeds a 4.0. They are honored to be nominated for this national award and will continue to add to the spirit of Marvin Ridge where they never forget to CRUSH IT!
