Local youth selects name of July 4 parade


Thanks to Seward Elementary student Jesse Wagnor, award-winning pop star Katy Perry’s presence will be felt in the community over the July 4th weekend.

Wagnor won the “Name the Parade” contest held by the chamber with his submission, “Like A Firework.”. The contest ran from March 21 to May 15.

In turning in his submission, Wagnor indicated that he chose the “Like a Firework” title because his mother and sister were fans of Perry and were always singing her song, “Like A Firework.”

According to Seward Chamber of Commerce officials, Wagnor’s submission was among many entrants from Jason Leslie’s fourth- and fifth-grade class.

For winning, Wagnor received a $25 gift card from Wells Fargo.
