Homecoming Buttons sell for $10 each and are the primary means of raising funds each year to provide all of the Homecoming activities.
Wearing a Homecoming Button will gain you admission into the Miss Cinderella Talent Show, the Miss Cinderella Pageant and the Homecoming Football game. It's a $38 value.
Each homecoming button is numbered and has a chance to win $500 in Alva chamber bucks. The winning button will be drawn during the homecoming football game on Saturday, Oct. 18, and the drawn number must be present to win. Making the button even more of a great deal, some local merchants will be offering discounts to patrons who wear a Homecoming button into their businesses during the week of Homecoming. A list of discounts and participating merchants is available at www.nwosu.edu/button-discounts.
Button Sales chair, Karen Koehn, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or (580) 327-0344 with questions or to purchase a button. Buttons also available in the Northwestern Alumni Association Office in the Student Center.
