NWAC Mascot Challenge Set for January 2017

Fellow NWAC Member Schools,
We are proud to extend an invitation to participate in the inaugural 2017 NWAC Mascot Challenge sponsored by The Mascot Company.

Win a $1,000 scholarship for your school!


Sponsored by The Mascot Company

Fans, students, faculty, and alumni can vote for their favorite NWAC Mascot between January 9 and February 13, 2017! The mascot with the most votes will earn “bragging rights” along with a $1,000 scholarship for their school curtesy of The Mascot Company.
*The Mascot Company will also offer 10% back to any school that wishes to purchase a mascot costume from the Mascot Company before September 2017.

The Mascot Challenge not only shows that students, faculty, alumni, and fans have pride in their schools, but helps boost visibility on social media. The NWAC Mascot Challenge has been created to build school spirit and make connections within our communities.

Every week there will be a task each mascot must complete and post on social media via photo or video. Specific instructions will be sent to your school’s mascot challenge facilitator along with a published weekly mascot challenge update by the NWAC.

The first two weeks will be preliminary rounds to rank mascots based on the number of votes they receive within the challenge week. The third week will open the single elimination bracket-style competition that will continue until the Mascot Challenge concludes on February 13th. The winning mascot will be announced by the NWAC and at a home Basketball game.

For all schools, commitment would be a minimum of two weeks. TOP 8 will advance to the single elimination bracket rounds.

Fans can vote by sharing the post on Facebook, retweeting the tweet on twitter, or liking the video or photo on Instagram. The NWAC will track weekly vote totals for every school participating and rank mascots based on their weekly vote totals.

Weekly Voting Closes: Every Friday at 12pm
Results/New Challenge Posted: Every Monday by 12pm

Registration Form is due on November 4, 2016 by 12pm.
