To determine a winner, participants were judged in the following segments: Opening Video, Talent Show, Beachwear, Formalwear, and Teacher Appreciation.

Competition judges were faculty and staff from Taunton High School.

Congratulations are in order to this year’s winner, Zach Gay, who put on a crowd-pleasing show with his saxophone rendition of “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire, throwback Tiger band wear, creative beachwear, and more. Zach also honored his father, THS guidance counselor Mr. Gregory Gay, for the parenting and educating he has done to aid Zach in his success thus far.
