Grand Prize Winner:
Vista Murrieta High School (Murrieta, CA)
In the classroom, on the playing field and in the community, members of the
Vista Murrieta community proudly live by a philosophy of CLASS:
Character • Leadership • Attitude • Scholarship • Service
The Vista Murrieta Broncos make a conscious effort to ensure that every member of
the community feels welcomed and accepted at school events. Every week, VMHS
provides free transportation to the “Golden Broncos,” senior citizens in the area who love
to come cheer for their adopted team. Alongside the Golden Broncos sits their roaring
student section, the “Bronco Bleacher Creatures.” Over 2,000 students don their Bleacher
Creature spirit shirts on game day, and their stadium-shaking, memory-making spirit has
earned VMHS the local honor of “Best Friday Night Football Game”.
The Vista Murrieta zeal is undeniable. One community member writes,
“Broncos don’t just sport blue and gold and cheer loudly; they live ‘The Bronco Way.’
Vista Murrieta High School is not just a high school, but a way of life.”
