The Arka Tech

Mr. Tech preview

DELTA ZETA Mr. tech participants from the 2016-2017 event which helped raise $400 for Delta Zeta. Winner last year was Jake Calvert of Sigma Pi.

Contestants will compete for the Mr. Tech title on Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. in Witherspoon. Admission is $3 and will benefit Delta Zeta sorority. Miss Tech Kelsey Stone will be judging the pageant along with the presidents of Alpha Sigma Tau, Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Mu sororities.

Jake Calvert was crowned the 2016 Mr. Tech and said that he “was very honored to have the opportunity to compete and win Mr. Tech.” The participants will compete in three categories: formal wear with an on stage question, swimsuit, and talent.

The event is being organized by Delta Zeta’s Bailey Greenwood, a sophomore communications and broadcast major from Des Arc, Arkansas. Greenwood said “come and watch to have a good laugh and also support all the Greek organizations on campus because there will be boys representing each fraternity.” Greenwood serves as Delta Zeta’s special events chairman.

If any men would like to compete for the Mr. Tech title they have until Oct. 20 to submit their registration form and a $20 registration fee to Bailey Greenwood. You can contact Greenwood at

The winner of the pageant will be crowned on stage and also receive a Buffalo Wild Wings gift card.

All proceeds will benefit Delta Zeta sorority. They hope to raise enough funds to send a member to the Painted Turtle Camp to volunteer this summer. The Painted Turtle Camp is an organization that allows children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses to attend a week long camp at no cost to the family.
