Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree to compete on the Travel Channel

MUSKEGON, Mich.-- Ready for the ultimate holiday mash-up of Christmas tree show downs from across America?

The Travel Channel has crossed the country in search of the most awesome Christmas celebrations and they have selected the best of the best. Now it is time for them to go head to head and the public gets the final say  on who takes home the prize. So the holiday rumble begins, for this is “Jingle Brawls.”

The Mona Shores High School Singing Christmas Tree will take on the Lobster Trap Tree in Rockland, Maine on the Travel Channel's “Jingle Brawls” Sunday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. Filming for the show occurred during last season's tree performance. Production organizers are hoping all of those who have watched or performed in the Singing Christmas Tree will vote online at TravelChannel.com, ensuring the kids of Mona Shores finish ahead of a bunch of lobsters!

The Singing Christmas Tree was the winner of this year's Excellence in Education Award, sponsored by the Michigan Association of School Boards. The Education Excellence Award program recognizes original, innovative programs in various categories that positively affect student achievement in local and intermediate school districts. The tree project was selected based upon its great benefit to students, parents and the community. With the award comes a cash prize, a trophy to display at the high school and a road sign to be placed near the intersection of Seminole and Seaway Drive.

“This award is truly a reflection of the outstanding tradition we have established here at Mona Shores. It is also the result of all the hard work, dedication and care shown annually by countless parents and students. It is with great pride that I accept this award on behalf of the entire Muskegon community,” said director Shawn Lawton.

This year’s Singing Christmas Tree is being held in downtown Muskegon at the Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts, 425 W. Western in Muskegon, on Dec. 5, 6 and 7 at 7 p.m.   A 3 p.m. matinee will take place on Saturday as well.
