Ready, set, hunt! Stuco hosts annual egg hunt


The morning of April 8, dozens of kids went running on the football field in the hunt of candy-filled eggs.

The Student Council (Stuco) sponsored egg hunt included game booths and featured several crafts for the children to take part in. When the kids were not looking for eggs, they were enjoying activities with other OHS clubs.

“An email was sent out to all clubs and they had the opportunity to decide what they wanted to do as a game,” Shayla Hrncic (12) Student Body President said. The games included a cake walk, bunny toss, coloring, among many others.

The Stuco execs arrived at 11 a.m., enthusiastic for set up and when kids and parents started to arrive around noon, the games were in full swing. The first egg hunt was at 12:30 p.m. for children aged four through seven. More than two dozen kids participated, taking about 10 minutes to collect the almost 300 eggs. The next hunt was at 1:30 p.m. for participants eight and older.

“The kids had a lot of fun I would say so myself. The smiles on their faces were priceless. They didn’t seem very lost, they [grasped] onto the idea of grabbing eggs really well,” Hrncic said.

Spread out throughout the two hunts golden tickets were also placed. If a kid opened an egg with a golden ticket, they earned a small stuffed animal as a price as well.

Along with collecting eggs and candy, all participants had the chance to buy raffle tickets for up to six baskets. Student council put the baskets together featuring toys, a movie night, hotel room, and many more surprises. Tickets were sold raising around $500.

At the end of the event (around 2:00 p.m.), the kids were all on their way home and Hrncic declared the event a success.
