WARSAW — In conjunction with the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship coming to Indy on Jan. 10, 2022, the 2022 Indianapolis Host Committee is bringing its inaugural Indiana Tailgate Tour to select high school football games across the state this fall, including this Friday’s Wawasee at Warsaw game. (Fun fact, this Saturday marks 100 days away from the national championship.)
From Aug. 20 to Oct. 15, the Indiana Tailgate Tour will activate at 18 high school football games across the Hoosier state, from South Bend to Evansville and numerous communities in between. At the Wawasee at Warsaw varsity football game on Friday, Oct. 1, the Indiana Tailgate Tour will set up at the stadium for fans to participate in prize giveaways, games and exciting football-skill activities with USA Football prior to kickoff.
During halftime, the Indianapolis Host Committee will award a $1,000 grant to the participating schools to aid in teacher and classroom development. An additional $500 will be donated to each school’s athletic department. In total, the Indianapolis Host Committee is committing $54,000 to participating Indiana Tailgate Tour high schools to improve student outcomes and leave a long-lasting impact on the people of Indiana.
““When it comes to major events, Hoosiers know it’s truly more than a game,” said Mark Howell, board chair of the 2022 Indianapolis Host Committee. “While the Indiana Tailgate Tour will be a great way for us to connect with local communities across our great state, it also serves as a platform for supporting schools and educators to improve student outcomes and leave a long-lasting impact on the people of Indiana. The Indianapolis Host Committee is honored to partner with the College Football Playoff Foundation in providing much needed support to Indiana schools and teachers.”
