The finalists for the 2013 Man and Woman of the Year at Wichita State University have been selected, with the winners to be announced at an awards banquet on Saturday, Oct. 26.
The annual scholarship competition is part of Shocktoberfest, a week-long celebration of Shocker spirit.
There were a record number of applicants for both the men and women this year. The task of narrowing the contestants to the top five males and top four females fell to a judging panel made up of WSU faculty and staff.
"It was very difficult to judge by comparing them one to another," said judge Carla Mann, senior administrative assistant in the Student Government Association. "They were all excellent candidates. Regardless of who wins, they should all be proud of themselves for their hard work, their dedication to their academics and the community and their pride in WSU and being a Shocker."
The winners will each receive a $650 scholarship, and the remaining finalists will receive $300 scholarships.
Man and Woman of the Year finalists:
The finalists will be presented to the student body at the Shocktoberfest Songfest and Awards Night at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 28, at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex.
