Warren cheerleader is in the running to receive a scholarship from JCPenney

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Bryson Harris, 10, isn't afraid to show his moves on the competition floor.

Ask him why he loves gymnastics and cheerleading and his answer is simple, "It's the funnest thing you can do."

But it's not easy.

Bryson practices four times a week. He's on one hip-hop and three cheer teams.

At Cheer Time Athletics in Howland, he's the only boy among almost 130 other students.

That doesn't bother him.

"Guys are really strong, they can also do everything girls can, and girls can do everything guys can," said Bryson.

It's that positive attitude that his team of supporters love about Bryson.

And it may be one reason why JCPenney selected Bryson as a finalist in their After School Awards competition, where they recognize students for their achievements outside of the classroom.

"I show my improvement in what I do. I try the best I can. Do what I can do. Anybody can do anything, all you have to do is try your hardest and you can do whatever," said Bryson.

As part of the competition, students can win up to $20,000 in scholarships.

But they need their community's support to win. You can vote for Bryson, click here.
