NMAA 24/7 APP DOWNLOAD CHALLENGE
How well do your fans follow your teams? Do they all have the NMAA 24/7 app? Could your school use $1000? The NMAA, in conjunction with Outfront Media Sports, is running a contest to see how many fans from your school download the best tool to follow your teams. Starting this week thru Sunday, March 8th 2020 we want to see which school can get the most downloads of the NMAA 24/7 app. The winning school will receive $1,000. A winner will be announced for a big school (4A-5A) and a small school (A-3A) at the 2020 NMAA State Basketball Championships. It’s easy, download the NMAA 24/7 app, it’s FREE, and make sure to follow your favorite team at your school. Also, make sure your notifications are turned on. Then tell your friends and family to do the same. The more downloads your school gets the better your chances are to win. Good luck and make sure to let your community know to download the NMAA 24/7 app. It could result in $1000 for your school.
