WIAA & KWIK TRIP LAUNCH “ROAD TEAM OF THE WEEK” CONTEST
STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Win a gift card for your team by entering the Kwik Trip “Road Team of the Week” contest! The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association and its new sponsorship partner Kwik Trip are introducing the “Road Team of the Week” social media contest beginning this week.
The nominations and selections of the recipients will total 22 weeks throughout the school calendar. A “Road Team of the Week” will be selected five weeks in the fall sports season, nine weeks during the winter season and eight weeks during the spring season.
To be eligible, the sports team would be required to win a competition at an away venue during the prescribed weekly nomination period. The prize for each week will be a Kwik Trip gift card ranging from $100-$200, dependent on roster size, and will be presented to the school.
A school may win more than once during the fall, winter and spring season, but a specific sport team is eligible for only one selection during each season.
