ZTA wins stompfest for fourth year
Zeta Tau Alpha won Stompfest 2013, beating out six other contenders for the title. This is the fourth year in a row Zeta Tau Alpha has won Stompfest.
The Asian Student Association won for best Independent Organization, and Zeta Tau Alpha won for best Greek Organization. Baylor Transfer Council won Audience Favorite. Audience members texted in their votes for the Audience Favorite after the acts ended.
Garland senior Zara Black said she has competed in Stompfest with Zeta Tau Alpha for three years.
“It feels like all the hard work is finally worth it,” Black said. “We’ve been working on this since before spring break, a lot of hours each week and a lot of late nights. It’s been pretty busy.”
All ticket sales, about $4,000, will go to benefit Sickle Cell Anemia, Zeta Phi Beta’s national philanthropy. Money will be donated to the charities each winning organization sponsored: Fuzzy Friends for the Asian Student Association, and the ZTA Foundation for Zeta Tau Alpha.
This year’s Stompfest theme was Michael Jackson, and the show was hosted by Walter Campbell.
The African Student Association performed a show before the acts began, combining hip hop with traditional African dance. The Baylor Dance Society also performed after all the Stompfest acts were complete.
Other competing teams included Kappa Alpha Theta, Student Foundation, Alpha Delta Pi, and Alpha Chi Omega.
Stompfest is jointly hosted by the Department of Student Activities and Zeta Phi Beta.
