Give me an “N,” give me an “E,” give me an “W!” What does that spell? “NEW!” It’s exactly what we have in store for your school year – new promotions and contests to bring out your students and fans school spirit.

From homecoming contests to raffles and fundraisers, we’ve got you covered. We understand how building an event that gives students and teachers a way to transition into the new school year is not that easy. (Especially for freshmen who are a fish out of water.) And face paint, pom-poms and mascots are nice, but they can only get you so far. So with IPG’s help, you can create an exciting event that gives the whole school a boost of anticipation for what’s ahead for the remainder of the year.

Think of all the events that you can take advantage of at the start of the school year –  football season, homecoming and Halloween. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the types of contests and promotions and prizes that can be incorporated. To help give you a few ideas, we have listed a few of our most successful promotions below for kicking off the school year. 

Straight A’s

Want to give people more of a reason to be excited for the start of school? If any finalist can roll ‘Straight A’s’ on 5-custom dice, they instantly win College Tuition, a Back to School Shopping Spree, or even a new ride!

Punt, Pass & Kick To Win

What better way to kick off Football season! Sponsor your team and give one fan a chance to do our Punt, Pass & Kick promotion! If they can punt and pass far enough down field they have a shot at winning themselves the cash prize with a field goal kick!

Are your teams in need of new uniforms and/or supplies? You’re in luck since IPG offers events for fundraisers as well. Out with the old and in with the new! Hold a fundraiser to get funding for activities and supplies that you know you are in need of. And the beginning of the school year is the best time to hold one. See below for a few ideas.

Lucky Envelope/Money Bags

Our Lucky Envelope/Money Bag promotion can conveniently be incorporated into almost any event. Create an exciting incentive where you narrow the promotion down to a few lucky participants. Give those contestants a chance to win big by selecting the winning envelope or money bag! 

Scratch Cards

Scratch cards are the perfect way to engage students and attendees at your school next event or fundraiser! Give participants the chance to win up to $1,000,000 at practically no cost to you. Our stock cards come in multiple themes or may feature a custom design of your choice. To win, players must simply scratch 6 boxes and if all 6 underlying symbols match, they win.
