A Sweet Stache Competition will be held, at which a panel of judges will select the Sweetest 'Stache, using a complicated, and very scientific, set of criteria; Mustaches will be judged solely on these standards. Race, creed, nationality, sexual orientation, and popularity will not be taken into consideration. As in past years, booing will not be tolerated, especially by rival competitors; this is for charity, after all. Much like the Mustache Checkpoints, the final judging should foster a party-like atmosphere to celebrate the fruits of everyone's Mustache labors.
Growers were evaluated on a series of highly-scientific categories to decide whose Mustache is the Sweetest. "Sweetness," like the late, great Walter Payton himself, is a somewhat elusive concept. The Crown doesn't always to go the man with the thickest or fullest mustache - we believe that the Mustache is more in the heart, than on the face. But Growers can find more information about the rules of the contest and what was expected of them here. http://m4khouston.wordpress.com
About Mustaches For Kids
Mustaches for Kids is a volunteer-run organization started in Los Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing Mustaches for children's charities. Since its humble beginnings, Mustaches for Kids satellite chapters have spread across the continent, a steady expansion that is not unlike the measured, deliberate growth of a Mustache. Through the years, Mustaches for Kids has enlisted the efforts of hundreds of brave of Growers who, collectively, have raised over $150,000 for charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children's Hospital of New Orleans, and San Francisco's Legal Services for Children.
Here's how it works: Each year, during the four-week Growing Season between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Growers sprout sweet, sweet Mustaches. Per Mustaches for Kids bylaws, they shave their faces, except for the Mustache, a minimum of one time per week and solicit donations from friends, family, co-workers, and people in the community. Kind of like getting pledges to run a marathon. Without the exertion, cramping, or dehydration. Call it a facial hair marathon.
