Greatmats $1000 Giveaway - Cheerleading Edition
What would your school do with $1,000?
The 5 finalists in the Greatmats $1000 Giveaway: Cheerleading Edition have been named!
Greatmats' Facebook page vote took place between March 22 and April 5, 2016 to vote for the school and cheerleading program you felt would get the best use out of Greatmats $1000 Giveaway: Cheerleading Edition. This contest had a two-part prize system - with the school athletic department and its related cheerleading program splitting the prize 50/50.
Votes were made by liking the photo (posted in our Facebook $1000 Cheerleading Giveaway album) associated with the school you'd wanted to win. Each like counted as one vote. Only likes to the original post counted as votes. All were invited to share the posts with friends and family, reminding them to like the original post to make sure their votes count.
The five schools with the most votes (likes) were named finalists in the $1000 Giveaway. These finalists were from Mount Gilead Middle School, Denfeld High School, Bradford Area High School, St. Mark Catholic School and Boone Grove Middle School. Greatmats chose the winner from those five finalists based on the professionalism of the entry. That winner is Denfeld High School. Learn more about Denfeld's winning entry, how it won, and what it will do with its winnings.
