BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA VILLAGE, FLORIDA – Magic Dove awarded two first-place winners in their annual Magic Dove Magician of the Year contest held Dec. 8.
Todd Bogue, of Port Orange, won for the adult division.
Justin Cowgill, a student at Rockledge High School, won the title in the youth division, and Megan Waryk, aka “Marvelous Megan,” won in the junior division, which marks her to be the first person to win this title three times.
Second place winners were Dr. Chad Lau, of Viera (adult division), Conner Harrell of Palm Bay (youth division), and Carter Concannon of Rockledge (junior division).
“Our little monthly contest has grown into an amazing event and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Dr. Dan Ezell, owner of Magic Dove Magic Shop—the sponsor of the event.
