Photo by Axel Marcenaro: The Association of Mexican American Students goes wild showing the judges how much school spirit they have. AMAS was awarded the most spirited organization.

Student organizations competed on Jan. 24 in the Junell Center to determine the most spirited group.
All registered student organizations were judged on most creative ASU inspired attire, which included face paint, body paint and hair. The groups were also judged on unique chants, the ability to stimulate crowd participation, sportsmanship and spirit props such as posters and banners.
Delta Sigma Pi won first place and a prize of $500.
“We love being able to support Angelo State in any way and this competition was a fun way to show Delta Sigma Pi has Ram pride, with earning some money in the process to help us in the future,” Cody Vasquez, Delta Sigma Pi president, said. “With this money, it makes it possible to offer scholarships to our members or host an event with financial worries not being a factor.”
Vasquez said the executive team hyped up the members about the competition a week prior to the event. The competition wasn’t about winning or the prize money, but the enjoyment of spreading Ram pride, he said.
The Association of Mexican American Students won second place and a prize of $300.
“AMAS is a big family and our motto is Amor, Familia y Respeto,” Sara Guerrero, AMAS president, said. “Our mission and goal is to promote and educate students about Mexican American culture. In addition, we welcome diversity which allows an opportunity to learn different cultures and backgrounds from many individuals.”
The Dance Troupe Association took third place and a prize of $200.
The winners of the Rammy Table were the gentlemen of Kappa Sigma. 
Delta Sigma Pi is a professional business organization that promotes the study of business in universities, encourages scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice.
The Association of Mexican American Students assist Mexican-American students to adjust to the academic and social aspects of college life. They also emphasize the study and appreciation of Mexican-American contributions to American society.
