Know Your Sport 2019
The Parents Association are launching another round of the Know Your Sport fundraising competition for 2019. Last year’s event was very successful, raising €5,400 for the new school build as well as providing great entertainment for all entrants. Specifically, the student competition turned out to be a great ancillary benefit. The monthly updates to the students included details on stats, information in chart format as well tabular and graphic views of the competition. It was great to have kids engaged in numeracy while having fun.
The student prizes include €100 in vouchers for Smyth’s Toys, and all students entries are free with a €10 adult entry.
Details of the main competition – $10 to enter for adults, pick a multiple choice option for 25 sports questions through the year. €1,000 in prize money for the Top 3. No sports knowledge required at all, the questions are weighted to promote people to take a chance. (Winner last year got 11 out of 25 questions correct)
We’ll send out monthly updates with some commentary to keep it interesting. If any student wants to enter the main competition, you can pay €10 for the student entry and that will be entered in both the student and the main competition Entries can be left into school office, given to a parents association member or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
