    Participation Competition

    We know that helping those in need is plenty of incentive to participate.  Even so, we are going to sweeten the deal.  The group with the highest percentage of participation wins a movie night with President Bowman.  Sorry, your jeans day dollar doesn't count unless you complete a pledge form.
