The annual Gardner News Football Contest begins its 12-week run on Aug. 31.
Football contest rules: the overall winner will receive $50, while runner up will be awarded $25. Weekly winners receive $10.
Official entry blanks must be received in the office at 936B East Santa Fe, Gardner, or by mail at P.O. Box 303, Gardner, KS 66030, by 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
All entries will be computed on the same basis, and the judge’s decision will be final.
Each week, a new entry form will be published in The Gardner News. The 12 games will appear in a separate box.
Simply select your winners and print them on the spaces provided. You must pick a score for the tiebreaker game. Only the official entry forms will be accepted. No copies or photo reproductions will be accepted.
As usual, the contest will feature key games from the college and pro level each week. The tiebreaker will usually involved the GEHS Trailblazers or the Kansas City Chiefs. We invite everyone to join in the free contest.
Be sure to get your entry in weekly. Missing a week is a sure way of eliminating yourself from the grand prize. Each week we will keep tabulations on how many correct predictions are made per person.
At the end of the season, the person with the highest number of correct answers will win the $50 grand prize.
Results of the contest will not be given until after the newspaper is published on Wednesdays.
Employees of Tri-County Newspapers, Inc., or members of their households are not eligible to participate.
