Florida to hold fan contest to name state football championships

By

In an interesting move, the Florida High School Athletic Association is holding a fan contest to name the state football playoffs and championships.

The organization announced a #NameTheTradition contest that begins Friday, with fans being able to submit names via this link through May 3. Once finalists are selected, there will be a fan vote May 10-13 with the winner announced May 16.

According to the official rules, the initial submissions “will be judged and weighted equally on the following points: (a) creative, fresh, fun, humorous; (b) compatibility with the Florida High School Athletic Association and image; and (c) applicability for use in advertising mediums of all kinds.”

The primary guidelines provided were to make it a neutral location because there is no guarantee where the state finals will be for the long term; keep it to no more than five words and/or 35 characters; “be totally original, created by you and suitable for general advertising use and for all age groups; and  “reinforce the characteristics of an iconic, family friendly, responsible and healthy American brand.”
