Mid Michigan College is hosting a tailgate event and scholarship giveaway at the Mt. Pleasant vs Traverse City West varsity football game on Friday, October 6 in Mt. Pleasant.

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 encourage community members to attend the game, support local student-athletes, and learn more about the College,” explained Amy Lince, Director of Community Relations at Mid.

During halftime, select students will compete in a fun, interactive scholarship giveaway contest. Each team 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 participants will each receive a $100 scholarship to Mid.

Mt. Pleasant 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 Lince.
