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 in the seventh annual Text to Win contest.
The week-long contest matched schools and communities against their football opponents November 30thand December 1stat M.M. Roberts Stadium on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. The school in each of the six games that received the most texts to a designated keyword was the winner.
Contest winning schools were: Oak Grove (Class 6A); West Jones (Class 5A); Louisville (Class 4A); Seminary (Class 3A); Scott Central (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.”
