It's been a spring tradition on the UW-Madison campus for 70 years--"Humorology". Students spend much of the year creating and rehearsing mini-musicals, and then compete against each other in the juried show at the Wisconsin Union Theater.

This year, about 600 students will participate in "Humorology", known as "Humo" for short. The event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local non-profits, including the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County and United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Dane County. This year, "Humo" hopes to raise $200,000 for The Neighborhood Community Center--Madison's oldest community center.

On NBC15 News at 5, John Stofflet presented "Humorology" representative Taylor Gray with the NBC15 Making a Difference award for all of the financial help "Humo" has provided area non-profits over the years. For more information, click on the attached Humorology link.
