Putting on the Show!
With only a few weeks left, the trustees and students from each school concoct the recipes for a fantastic OSB 2014 by adding T-shirts, hats, props, flags, noisemakers, body paint, etc… to their carts. Why do optometry students go all out, you may ask? The ever growing Varilux® Optometry Student Bowl™ has really come a long way in expressing their regards since the 1992 “Optometry Super Bowl,” and so did the optometry students!
Take this spiffy picture for example. Although the judges and emcees have maintained their attire, clearly the contestants have picked the flashy route.
Trending now – each school (or contestant) picks a theme for the year and soon after the recipe for creative outlets boil. With the clear purpose to win, each school flaunts their thematic gear at OSB to raise up their contestant, each student screams louder to cheer on their rep. The stakes are high for the ones competing and with such fierce competition, this friendly sport’s mentality cannot be negated. “Why do optometry students go all out?” is a question that can be answered by so many different voices. However one thing remains constant, having fun is the undeniable tradition. So please share your theme for this year (unless it’s a secret of course).
