Don’t miss the fourth annual Kids Need to Read Geek Prom, sponsored by Bookmans Entertainment Exchange and made possible by Phoenix Comicon. As a signature event of the convention, an entire ballroom is devoted to the KNTR Geek Prom, enabling throngs of Geekanoids to attend this quirky soiree. Due to the Geekerosity of our Geektabulous friends at Bookmans, all proceeds benefit Kids Need to Read, a foundation that does not discriminate against Geeks, Dweebs, or Nerds. This is the Big Bang Party! Expect Geektastic music and dancing, tons of prizes, live auction of a full-scale T.A.R.D.I.S. replica, Geek-themed decorations, photos under the Geek Arch and/or T.A.R.D.I.S., Fashion Geektacular, and crowning of the 2013 KNTR Geek Monarchs.
The theme for Geek Prom 2013 is BRIT GEEK. Dress in your Geeky best and enter the Fashion Geektacular to vie for the titles of Geek King, Geek Queen, Geek Prince, and Geek Princess! Any appropriate Geek attire may be modeled during the Fashion Geektacular, including the themes of CLASSIC GEEK (dweeb, nerd, etc.), CONTEMPORARY GEEK (superhero, video game character, etc.), or BRIT GEEK (Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, Shaun of the Dead, Austin Powers, etc.). New this year: Judging for the Fashion Geektacular will take place prior to the Geek Prom on Saturday, May 25th, starting at 2:00 PM in the Sundance Room on the first floor of the Hyatt. Contestants will participate in a final strut on the catwalk during the prom, followed by the crowning of the winners as the 2013 Geek Monarchs. Event rated PG-13.
