There was nothing in the rules of the Taylor Swift on Campus contest that said you had to be a student of the school that you voted for, but after taking a commanding lead, the Horace Mann School for the Deaf was disqualified anyway, even though their principal said the students would love it and he’d be happy to win.
Instead Harvey Mudd College has been declared the winner, while the Horace Mann School will receive $50,000 in cash and another $10,000 in musical instruments. Which just seems cruel. What are they gonna spend it on, bass drums? An entire band of nothing but bass drums? Awesome. People a mile in every direction will think Godzilla is chasing them. I’m sure that won’t cause any panic attacks. Way to go Taylor.
