Homecoming float entries, sketches due Sept. 27

September 12, 2011 

Float entry deadline for the Northwestern/Alva Homecoming 2011, “Northwestern: Branded for Life,” has been set for Tuesday, Sept. 27. Entries must be turned into the Office of Student Services on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building, room 126, by 5 p.m.

All participants will ride in the Homecoming parade on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 10 a.m. Judging will take place before and during the parade with winners announced during the awards ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on the courthouse stage.

Float prizes will be $200 for first place, $150 for second place and $100 for third place.

Entrants in the float contest are asked to design their floats according to the theme. Dress, music and photos based on the idea “Northwestern: Branded for Life” could be used as part of the float design.

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 ($75) for an exceptional display of Ranger spirit.

Campus and non-profit organizations may qualify for up to $200 in reimbursement. These groups must provide receipts verifying expenses.
