The Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations at Pittsburg State University made winners out of five supporters this week during the university’s first “Best Plate in the State” drawing.
Paul Hays of Wichita took first place, walking away with a 32-inch flat panel television. Ron Brock of Pittsburg took the second place prize of four 2008 season tickets to the Rua Skybox at Carnie Smith Stadium. Gary Rimbey of Frontenac won a $100 Gorilla Bookstore shopping spree, and Anna Gudde of Pittsburg won two club tickets to the Fall Class VII game at Arrowhead Stadium. Darren Masten of Stilwell won a PSU goodie basket.
The prizes were awarded as part of this year’s new PSU license plate campaign. Those purchasing a new plate between May 1 and June 30 were eligible.
During the drawing, the proceeds from plates purchased in select counties provided scholarships to students from those counties. The office awarded $1,000 to Dustin Engle of Crawford County, $750 to Ashley Powell of Cherokee County, and $500 to Kati Snelling of Sedgwick County.
Gorilla license plates are available for $30 (proceeds go toward the Alumni Legacy License Plate Scholarship Fund) plus the $45.50 fee to the state and applicable fees.
Current tag holders who renew their plates this year are eligible for the January 2, 2009 prize drawing. Prizes include four tickets to the Rua Skybox for any home game in 2009, a PSU fleece blanket, and a framed Ted Watts print.
