BVU Hosts "Take a Kid to the Game"

This from Kellyn Arnold from the BV Student-Athlete Advisory Committee:

"On Saturday, October 6th, the BVU Athletics Department and BVU SAAC students took part in the NCAA’s annual Take a Kid to the Game event.  Kids thru 8th grade were admitted FREE with a paid adult.  Each child got a FREE bag of popcorn from the BVU concessions, blue & gold Beaver pompoms and a beaver face tattoo.  They registered for door prizes and guessed how many candy corn were in a candy football dispenser.  In addition, Nick Schumacher donated 100 BVU Football  Game Day t-shirts for the first 100 kids in the gate!   Kids also had their headshot taken so we could display them on the video board during halftime and after the game.  Twenty-four door prizes winners were drawn (prizes were a BVU water bottle and 1 FREE candy bar from BV concessions).   In conjunction with the Take a Kid to the Game event, the BVU Cheerleaders also hosted  60+ kids at a youth cheer clinic that morning and those kids got to cheer with the BVU cheerleaders the entire first half."
