Homecoming float entry deadline extended

October 7, 2009

Float entry deadline for the Northwestern/Alva Homecoming 2009, “A Century of Ranger Pride,” has been extended to Tuesday, Oct. 13. Entries must be turned into the Office of Student Services on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building by 5 p.m.

The Northwestern/Alva Homecoming Association is using funds from the City of Alva Tourism Committee to keep float prize awards the same for this year’s parade.

Float prizes will remain $200 for first place, $150 for second place and $100 for third place. This is a significant increase from two years ago when prizes were established for $25, $15 and $10 for first, second and third places.

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.

Participants are encouraged to visit www.nwosu.edu/homecoming to receive specific information for reimbursements and rules and guidelines for float building.

Office hours for the Office of Student Services are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

All applications should include a sketch or design, including details for approval. There also is a $15 deposit for groups using the Armory for float building.

For application information and other questions, contact float chairmen Dr. Aaron Mason at (580) 327-8522 or mason@nwosu.edu, or Dr. Eric Schmaltz at (580) 327-8526 or ejschmaltz@nwosu.edu.
