Arthur's Award is an annual cheer competition between classes. This year, Arthur's is 49 years old. In 1964, students felt that the school lacked spirit. To solve the problem, they decided to have a cheering competition between classes. The winning class received a trophy named Arthur's similar to the Oscars for the Academy Awards. As years passed, more activities were added to the Arthur's such as the Alma Mater Competition, Blue and Gold Day, Field Day, banner, shield competitions, and the parade. To many, Arthur's Award is the high point of their year.
