Dragons fans should be accustomed to massive prize contests every year by now and this year is no different. Here’s a breakdown of what MSUM Dragon Athletics and Valley Imports have done over the last several years:

  • 2010-11: Car Contest – After contestants didn’t win the new car, Valley Imports gave away a 1-year lease on a new Volkswagen Jetta
  • 2011-12: Vacation Giveaway – We gave away a dream vacation for two to Jamaica
  • 2012-13: Season of Cash – Winner took home $4,500 in cash
  • 2013-14: U-Turn & Win – A strategic shoot-turn-shoot game turned up short despite 11 attempts, so we raced mini-Mercedes Benz cars for $1,000 cash
  • 2014-15: Variety Show – We tried everything…6 different car contests came up empty handed, but we did give away guaranteed win prizes like a TV, scooter, iPad, and even $1,000 cash again
  • 2015-16: 3 Free Cars for a Year! – We gave away a car for a year at Opening Day, Basketball Opener, and a pick your car for two years at the sell-out Fill the Fieldhouse

You can see how it just snowballed to try to top the year before…so for the 2016-17 season we had such a huge success with car contests last year that we wanted to bring it back, but we had to up our game right? How about a chance to win a Dragon red 2017 Audi A3 for a year! Someone will win the hot rod at Fill the Fieldhouse on Friday, Feb. 3, during the basketball double-header against Winona State University at 6 p.m. and 8 p,m. How can you win? Great question. 

How to Qualify

During halftime of the women’s game on Feb. 3, 30 contestants will face-off to narrow the pool down to a final four who will again compete at halftime of the men’s game on the same night to determine the winner of the A3 for a year. Qualifiers will be chosen in two ways.

  1. The top five points earners in each of the following categories on the #FiredUp Fan Zone Rewards App (Presented by Valley Imports) on Jan. 23: Students, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, Fans, and Undeclared.
  2. Five contestants will be picked at random before halftime of the women’s game from the list of checked-in individuals on the #FiredUp Fan Zone Rewards App.

So, come to everything and get to the top of the list OR show up the day of the contest and check-in for your chance to win an Audi A3 for a year from Valley Imports.

Qualifiers cannot be employees, interns, or volunteers of MSUM Dragon Athletics. Must be present to win at halftime of both men’s and women’s games.

Special thanks to our long-time partners over at Valley Imports who have helped us entertain our Dragon faithful for year and continue to up the ante year after year. Filled with Dragon Pride to share this with you and definitely #FiredUp to give away another car! Be sure to get the #FiredUp Fan Zone Rewards App on the App Store and Google Play today!
