Mid Michigan College is hosting a tailgate event and scholarship giveaway at the Alma vs Bridgeport varsity football game on Friday, October 14 in Alma.
College representatives and current students will be at the field starting at 6pm with free hot dogs, purchased through the local sports boosters association, and swag giveaways.
“We want to encourage community members to attend the game, support local student-athletes, and learn more about the College,” explained Scott Mertes, Vice President of Academic Affairs & Community Outreach.
During the game, two students from each participating high school will compete in a fun, interactive scholarship giveaway contest. Each team of two will stand 15 yards apart with one student throwing 10 Mid Michigan College footballs and the other attempting to catch them in a basket. Both members of the winning team will receive a $500 scholarship to Mid Michigan College. The remaining two participants will each receive a $100 scholarship to Mid.
Alma and Bridgeport high school students can register for a chance to participate at midmich.edu/team-toss-challenge or by connecting with a Mid Admissions Representative at their school the week of the game.
“The College has always been a community partner and is increasing efforts to support local communities and students of all ages across mid-Michigan,” noted Mertes.
