Homecoming Float Startup Money Available for SWOSU Organizations


Deadline to apply for startup money for SWOSU organizations that plan to build floats at this year’s SWOSU Homecoming is October 8.  Homecoming this year at SWOSU is November 3.

The SWOSU Alumni Association is continuing their program of supporting organizations that build floats for the homecoming parade. Prize money this year is going to remain impressive for float winners. First place is worth $1,300, second place $800 and third place $500.  Like the previous eight years, the startup money is available for organizations that submit a float proposal. A float committee will select a maximum of six proposals, each receiving up to $200 in matching money to help purchase additional supplies for the construction of a float. This is money to supplement what organizations are already spending on float supplies.

The application deadline for a share of the startup money is October 8.

Homecoming theme is "Year of the Dawg: Duke Salutes Oklahoma’s Centennial!"  The SWOSU football opponent that day is the East Central Tigers.
