The prizes will be donated to the school or association’s scholarship fund.

Administrators, faculty, staff and students who attend the game will be eligible for individual drawings in which the winner from each school will receive a $100 Visa gift card, also provided by Wells Fargo.
Attendance will be “taken” at the gate through halftime of the game, and winning schools and individual gift card winners will be announced at the end of third quarter. Members of the Catawba Admissions Office will make formal presentations of these awards at a future date.
