Week 5 Final Round

Practice Makes PerfectFebruary 6th – February 10th

There is no glory in practice but without practice there is no glory.  This one is a two-parter. First, film your mascot in training to be the best mascot he/she can be.  Maybe your mascot is working out at the gym, or maybe at basketball practice or with another team on campus.  Think training montage like in the movies, Rocky, Karate Kid or GI Jane.  Now comes the results!  Film your mascot interacting on campus, like at a game pumping up the crowd or performing at halftime. Your mascot may even be at some other event on campus like an involvement fair, or high school recruiting.  Whatever it is we want to see the ultimate result! 

2017 CHAMPION

After 5 amazing weeks of Mascot Madness, and 12,188 total social media likes later, the 2017 NWAC Mascot Challenge Champion is…. THE EVERETT TROJAN!  Here is how the voting ended up for the final week.
