In case you haven’t experienced the wonderful day that has been dubbed the “Cupcake Smackdown” at JMM, it’s a wonderful tradition created by the Gender-Sexuality Alliance that always puts the profits towards a LGBTQ+ foundation called GSAFE to help create just and effective schools for all students! Any students who are interested can just bring their unique creations (by the dozen) to the Lit Center from 7:45-8:30 that morning! There will be several rounds of judging by a select task force of teachers to taste-test and score each creation, and then the holistically selected first, second, and third place winners will receive some cool prizes. In addition to the high-stakes competition, the cupcakes will be on display all day Thursday in the Welcome Center for students to purchase, and then they will be available after school to pick up and enjoy. If you’re interested in supporting JMM, GSAFE, or even if you just have a sweet tooth, be sure to stop by on Thursday, December 19th to check out these cakes!
