To support the mentorship component of this organization, please donate composition notebooks, individually packaged granola bars, trail mix, nuts, pretzels, or other snacks, and skill-building games for 8 to 13 year old males and females.

VAEOPP LIP SYNC BATTLELIP SYNC BATTLE
Welcome to the first annual VAEOPP Lip Sync Battle! After Tuesday evening’s President’s banquet, VAEOPP will host a Lip Sync Battle in the Rotunda from 8:30 pm-10:30 pm.   So come prepared to raise some serious coin for VAEOPP Scholarships.

If you attended MEAEOPP 2015, you know the rules. For the uninitiated,  here’s how this works:

  1. You and your staff (AKA Backup singers) come prepared for battle or wing your favorite song on the night of the battle.
  2. If someone nominates you to lip sync the song of your choice, you can pay to NOT accept the challenge. OR . . .
  3. If you accept the challenge,  the nominator must pay the designated amount.
  4. When VAEOPP members accept the challenge and perform, then audience members have the chance to show their support for their favorite artist by adding $1, $5, or $10 bills to the pot.

We are going to have a blast with this battle and raise some funds for our scholarship recipients. We cannot wait to see your dance moves!
