Champions Trophy

One Champion's trophy will be awarded in each division (Greek, Student Organization, and Residence Hall). Points will be accumulated throughout Homecoming week by participating in events. The group in each division receiving the most points will be awarded the Champion's trophy at the football game on October 25th against Stevens Point. Champion's points are not applied to the Chancellor's Spirit Cup.

The decision of the Homecoming Steering Committee is FINAL.

The Homecoming Champion's Trophy and Chancellor's Spirit Cup are presented by the Chancellor and are designated as traveling trophies. Thus, the 2008 recipients of trophies and cups will be permitted to retain the trophy for display, recruitment, and/or other organizational purposes until October 1, 2009.
