Ohio Valley Goodwill is very excited to announce that the organization is working with Local 12 WKRC-TV and STAR64 television on the 2015 Saturday High School Rivals! The challenge for the local high schools is in competing with each other to collect the most donations in support of Goodwill and its mission of putting people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans to work in our community.
Throughout the Fall football season, a Goodwill donation trailer will be delivered to the competing schools chosen for the game of the week. During the weekly televised football game, a Goodwill representative will disclose what school collected the most donations. The winning school will receive an ice cream social sponsored by Cold Stone Creamery and Sweet Frog Premium Frozen Yogurt.
All of the middle and junior high schools will join to help support the high school by collecting donations and teaching our youth to give back to their community.
Goodwill celebrity spokesperson, Joe Walter has filmed a television spot explaining the 2015 Goodwill High School Football Challenge. The spot will be shown at every school the week before the challenge starts. During the televised weekly football game, Goodwill will be featured to talk about the organization’s mission in the Greater Cincinnati community.
After each featured game of the week, each high school will submit the name of their best athlete and one student will be named “Goodwill Scholar Athlete of the Week” and be presented with a plaque delivered by Goodwill at the local high school. These presentations to the “Goodwill Scholar Athlete of the Week” will be taped and aired.
The most exciting part is that at the end of the season all players of the week will be reviewed and one very deserving student will be selected as the “Goodwill Athletic Scholar of the Year” and will receive a $5,000.00 college scholarship!
Goodwill celebrity spokesperson Joe Walter will attend most of the games and will be available as possible to present the awards in partnership with Goodwill Public Information Officer, Michael Flannery.
