Homecoming float entries and sketches due Oct. 6

September 21, 2015

Northwestern Oklahoma State University and Alva Campus Homecoming float deadline has been set for Tuesday, Oct. 6. The theme is “Ranger Nation: Ride of Fame”. Entry Forms must be turned into the Office of Student Services of the first floor of the Fine Arts Building, room 126, by 5 p.m.

All floats will participate in the homecoming parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10 in downtown Alva. Floats must be complete and in line by 9 a.m. in order for a portion of the judging to begin. Judging will take place before and during the parade. Winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on the Woods County Courthouse stage.

Three float categories for registration are: campus organization or group, commercial business, or off-campus non-profit group. All applications should include a sketch or design, including details for approval. There is a $100 deposit for using the Armory for float building.

Entrants in the float contest are asked to design their floats according to the homecoming theme: “Ranger Nation: Ride of Fame.” Dress, music, and photos based on the theme could be used as part of the float design.

Participants will be in the running for prizes such as $200 for first place, $150 for second place, and $100 for third place. In addition, each float in all categories will be considered for the President’s Award -- $100 and engraved plaque – for the best overall float, and the Alumni Association Award of $75 for an exceptional display of Ranger spirit.

Campus and non-profit organizations may qualify for us to $200 reimbursement. These groups must provide receipts verifying expenses. The first five groups to turn in receipts will be reimbursed.

Entry forms, specific information about reimbursements and rules / guidelines on float building are available at www.nwosu.edu/float-entry-rules.

Any questions should be directed to float chairman of homecoming Dr. Richmond Adams, assistant professor of English, at (580) 327-8428 or rbadams@nwosu.edu.
