New OHIO spirit award calls for video submissions, winner to be Homecoming 2016 guest of honor


Do you bleed green and white? Is Athens a home for you? Does your heart beat to the tempo of “Stand Up and Cheer”?

Well hello, Bobcat, we’ve been waiting for you.

The OHIO Alumni Association has heard those Bobcat battle cries and seen that green-out spirit in action; and we’re giving alumni the chance to show off their OHIO spirit by competing in an all-new Homecoming 2016 video contest.

Stand Up and Cheer for the inaugural Cheermeister Spirit Award!

The rules are simple:

  • Upload a video of yourself to Facebook displaying your OHIO spirit
  • Include #OHIOCheermeister and #OHIOHC2016 in the caption
  • You must be a graduate of Ohio University to enter

The 8 videos with the greatest number of likes on Facebook by Aug. 15 will be selected for a March Madness-style bracket and will go head-to-head for alumni votes via email. The winner will be announced on Sept. 29, one week before Homecoming.

In addition to bragging rights, the Homecoming Cheermeister will receive a special edition personalized letterman’s jacket, official Cheermeister megaphone, VIP seating for the game and mounds of OHIO swag.

The 2016 Homecoming Cheermeister also will be the guest of honor for the Yell Like Hell Pep Rally, attend the Alumni Awards Formal Gala, be recognized during the game and lead the march as Parade Marshall for the Homecoming parade.
