Colts Tailgate of the Year Contest Enters Final Week

Indiana's Corn and Soybean Farmers Look for the Best Colts Tailgate 

The Best Colts Tailgate Contest, presented by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and the Indiana Soybean Alliance, is entering its final week. While several quality entries have been received, fans can still provide a submission via Twitter and Instagram through December 7, 2015 

“Tailgating is a big part of the Colts game day experience,” said Jay Souers, Colts Senior Vice President of Sponsorship Sales. “Thanks to Indiana’s corn and soybean farmers, we are able to select the Colts Tailgate of the Year and recognize some of our most creative and enthusiastic fans.”

Fans may submit tailgate photos via Twitter and Instagram by using #ColtsBestTailgate. The Grand Prize winner will receive $1000 in cash, a $500 Meijer Gift Card, a Colts Team Autographed item, a $500 Colts Pro Shop Gift Card and have their name placed on the Colts Tailgate of the Year Trophy. The Second Place Prize winner will receive a $300 Meijer Gift Card.

Two (2) finalists will be selected from the entries. These finalists will be invited to set up their tailgate in Touchdown Town prior to the Colts final home game on January 3. Tailgates will be judged on overall presentation (look and feel/amenities), Colts enthusiasm (both visual and by the tailgate attendees), food quality (finalists must incorporate food items produced by Indiana farmers) and creativity. The contest will be judged by Indiana Farmers, bloggers and former Colts Safety Mike Prior.
