APO’s Ugliest Man on Campus (UMOC) competition returns this year, with a booth in Lobby 10. Passers-by are invited to vote for the candidate that they think is ugliest, with one penny equaling one vote.
In a twist, this year’s contest returns to the original name (“Ugliest Man”), when in some prior years the name was “Ugliest Manifestation.” Despite that, this year, while each candidate is technically a person, most people have chosen to run on behalf of objects, such as the dining plan.
Each candidate designates a charity to receive the proceeds if they win. Allan E. Miramonti ’13, who is representing the Dining Plan, has selected Child’s Play; James M. Penna ’14 is representing a rotting jack-o-lantern, selected World Education.
Roberto J. Melendez ’12 is representing himself, and has selected Fundahmer. Random Hall’s “Pecker Floor,” representing their sink, has selected the American Cancer Society; Pecker Floor is also running “Fifteen-year-old Juice,” and has selected the CDC Foundation. Jordan A. Goldstein ’14 is representing a staircase at Random Hall, and has selected Doctors Without Borders.
