We provide a variety of games, contests and activities that give students a chance to win prizes. The prizes you donate prior to the event are allocated as "grand prizes" for each game or contest. Each game/contest is designed to produce 8-10 grand prize winners throughout the event. Depending on how long each game takes to complete, we run multiple heats in a given time frame. The winners of those heats, then compete for the grand prize. This is how we ensure we have enough "grand prizes" for all winners, The number of prizes you donate and confirm before the event determines how many cycles of each game or contest we can run during the two-hour period.   

Winning students are given certificates to redeem at Prize Central, and receive the prizes you donate. Any prize not redeemed before the end of the event (which is very rare), will be given to students via social media contests or other events where your company will also receive promotion as the donating sponsor. 

 

As a state entity, there are limits on the value of items we can purchase for promotions. This is what makes the partnership with our vendors so unique. You provide the prizes, and we provide an opportunity to expose your brand to thousands of students in the 18-24 demographic. 

Grand prize ideas include: gift cards, gift baskets, products or merchandise, outdoor adventure trips, recreation equipment, t-shirts (students love t-shirts), etc. 

 

Example: 

If you provide 6, $20 gift cards, that equals $120, and we can provide a grand prize for 6 winners. 

 

If you provide 12, $10 gift cards, that still equals $120, but we can provide a grand prize for 12 winners and conduct six more rounds of a given game or contest.

Food vendors must be willing to provide a minimum of 1,500 (2-oz. minimum) “tastings” for attendees over a two-hour period. We recommend a maximum of 2 different sample items per vendor, as lines will move more efficiently with fewer choices.
