Build bonds with all your new members and sign up for our Spirits Awards competition for homecoming! This years theme is Jurassic Stout! There are a total of 4 events that your org would be competing in: Banner competition, Soapbox Derby building and race, Couch-a-thon, and the Penny Wars. There will be a Fall Mandatory Meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 6pm in the Northwoods Room of the MSC. Only ONE person from your org MUST attend. If you are already registered you may pick up your banner here as well. If you are unsure if you'd like to participate yet, you can use this meeting to learn more about homecoming and what the org competition entails. Please consider attending.
If 4 events sounds like it might be too much of a commitment for your org, sign up for the Homecoming Lip Sync Battle! It's only one event and anyone can participate. You can have a group represent your org, or it can just be you and a group of friends. Register on the Blue Devil Productions CONNECT page. You can win some awesome prizes. (If your org is signed up for the Spirit Awards, you can still participate in the Lip Sync Battle but there is no correlation with points and org standings with the Spirit Awards.)
The registration deadline for the Spirit Awards is Tuesday, September 25th. The registration deadline for the Lip Sync Battle is Wednesday, September 19th. (Note: there is a registration fee for the homecoming Spirit Awards, but registration for the Lip Sync Battle is FREE)
**Be sure to read the Rules Packet and sign BOTH the Rules Packet and Registration Form. You'll want to bring both of these to the Mandatory Meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 6pm in the Northwoods Room of the MSC.
