MHSAA schools win $1,000 prizes in Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi “Text to Win”

 

Six MHSAA member schools that participated in the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Gridiron Classic state football championships collected $1,000 prizes from the ninth annual Text to Win contest.

The week-long contest matched schools and communities against their football opponents December 4th and December 5th at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson. The school in each of the six games that received the most texts to a designated keyword was the winner.

Contest winning schools for 2020 were: Oak Grove (Class 6A); West Jones (Class 5A); Poplarville (Class 4A); Magee (Class 3A); Taylorsville (Class 2A); and Lumberton (Class 1A). Each school received 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 partner with MHSAA to support student athletics and P.E. programs through the Gridiron Classic and the Text to Win contest,” said Courtney Grimes, Public Relations Specialist for Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. “High school athletics give students opportunities to establish healthy habits that will last a lifetime. We look forward to a continued partnership with MHSAA to support healthy futures for our students throughout Mississippi.”
