You can vote to decide who will get dunked on Sept. 26

Clarion Staff Report

To raise funds for student leader scholarships, Madison College Student Ambassadors are holding a coin and cash war to determine who will spend time in the dunk tank at the Truax Campus Fun Day on Sept. 26.

All money raised by the coin and cash war and dunk tank activity will be used to provide scholarships for the five students who receive the annual Karen Roberts Student Life Leadership award.

Eight students and 12 college staff members have agreed to be included in the coin and cash war.

The top six staff members and the top three students from the coin and cash war will spend 20 minutes in the dunk tank at Campus Fun Day.

Collection jars for the coin and cash war are in the Student Life office at Truax, located in Room B1260. Student Ambassadors will also collect your monetary votes while tabling outside Student Life.

You can vote as often as you’d like and for multiple people. Simply deposit money into the jars of the people you’d like to see in the dunk tank. Those who have the most money in their jars when the Student Life office closes on Sept. 24 will “win” time in the dunk tank. Last year, the Student Ambassadors were able to raise $703 through the coin and cash war and dunk tank event. Their goal for this year is to exceed that amount this fall.

Your opportunity to dunk the winners will come during the Truax Campus Fun Day event, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 26 outside the Health Education building. Three throws will cost $1.
