Schools looking for ideas to create Jackson Bowl trophy

Administrators at Brownstown Central and Seymour high schools are in search of ideas for the creation of a traveling trophy to be presented each year to the winning team of the annual Jackson Bowl Seymour vs. Brownstown Central football game.
Like many rivalry games (i.e., IU vs. Purdue’s Old Oaken Bucket, USC vs. UCLA’s Victory Bell) the schools hope this award will add a traditional piece to an already highly anticipated annual event.
The schools are looking for a unique trophy that might symbolize or represent an item, idea or event that has local significance to the Jackson County history and culture.
The trophy would need to have room for and a method of displaying each year’s game winner and score.
Brownstown Central and Seymour are inviting members of the community to submit their ideas, sketches and reasoning for the Jackson Bowl traveling trophy to either school’s athletic directors by April 28.
At that time, members of each school will convene to review all submissions and select the winning trophy idea.
The winning trophy designer will be awarded $100 and be asked to make the traveling trophy’s inaugural presentation at the 2017 Jackson Bowl postgame ceremony.
Ideas may be submitted to Seymour or Brownstown Central’s athletic offices or email Kirk Manns (man[email protected]) or Mark DeHart ([email protected]).
