MHSAA schools win $1,000 prizes in Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi contest

Six MHSAA member schools that played in last weekend’s Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Gridiron Classic state football championships will collect $1,000 prizes for winning the sixth annual Text to Win contest.

The week-long contest matched schools and communities against their football opponents Dec. 1st and 2nd at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on the campus of the University of Mississippi in Oxford. The school in each of the six games that received the most texts to a designated keyword was the winner.

Contest winning schools were: Starkville (Class 6A); Hattiesburg (Class 5A); East Central (Class 4A); Yazoo County (Class 3A); Winona (Class 2A); and Nanih Waiya (Class 1A). Each school will receive a check for $1,000 designated for its physical education department from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi.

“Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi is proud to support Mississippi high school athletics and physical education,” said Meredith Bailess, Director, Corporate Communications for Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. “We believe these programs are helping to establish a strong foundation for healthy habits throughout life. Our partnership with the Mississippi High School Activities Association furthers our shared commitment to a healthy future for our students and our state.”
