The scene was set. The Get Up & Go Show arrived at Mississippi Heights Elementary School this morning to surprise one unsuspecting big sister.  We partnered with our friends at The Eleven Hair Salon to send a winner and a guest to see pop superstar Selena Gomez live in concert at the Target Center November 21st.  Out of over 200 entries, little brother Will (who's 7 years old) was the big winner.  He picked up a pair of tickets to the show, $200 in spending cash and makeovers courtesy of The Eleven Hair Salon in Sauk Rapids.

Mom Amy signed him up for the contest but she was just as surprised as us to find out he wasn't looking to win the prize for himself, but his big sister Ella.  The wonderful staff at Mississippi Heights Elementary School were kind of enough to allow us to come give big sis the good news in person.  We arrived just after 10AM to chat with Mrs. Jana Paulson's  class of 4th grades (who we found out was recently honored by SCSU as Teacher of the Year), so they could be in on the big reveal.

Everyone was all smiles once the good news was revealed in front of the entire class of 31 students and lucky Ella even had a big hug for the worlds best little brother.
