Inside Sonoma Valley High’s Mr. Dragon event
Sonoma Valley High School’s annual Mr. Dragon competition, a parody of beauty pageants, took place in Golton Hall on March 7. Among the events that seven participants engaged in were beach wear, spirit wear and talents. The evening wasn’t without controversy, as a group of students gathered outside to protest the event’s gender-exclusive name.
A crowd of around 200 – one of the contest’s biggest crowds ever – watched the show. After more than two hours of revelry, SVHS senior Gavin Koler was named Mr. Dragon. Koler won two tickets to the SVHS prom.
