Hey football fans, are you doing the happy dance now that it’s “game on” for the NFL?  We sure are! That’s why we are super excited about Back to Football Friday! We’d like to invite you to share your NFL pride and build some serious school spirit by signing up for Back to Football Friday! Also, keep an eye out for the Back to Football Friday poster in the August issue of the PTO Today magazine and start building that spirit.  If you haven’t already registered your school to participate, be sure to register now at www.NFLRUSH.com/contest.

Here’s how it works:

  • Once you’ve registered, start planning a Back to Football Friday celebration for Friday, September 9th! Invite your school community to get creative and show their NFL team spirit at the celebration… and get those cameras ready!

  • After the celebration, submit 3-6 photos of your awesome event and answer the 3 questions in the entry form (each 100 words or less) to complete your submission before the contest closes on Thursday, September 22nd.

  • Here’s the really cool part: the schools that showcase the most NFL pride have a chance to be one of 34 NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools. These grand prize winners will receive a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 health and wellness grant* and an NFL team celebration that will include a NFL PLAY 60 ultimate gym class at your child's school. Check out these photos of one of last year’s winning schools at their NFL team celebration.

What a fabulous way to start your school year out on a spirited note!

* Awarded in the form of a check made payable to the winning school.
