Two Ashley Ridge High School Students Win Limo Party and $500
(N. CHARLESTON, S.C.) – November 29, 2011 – Two Ashley Ridge High School students won a limo party and a $500 gift card from Young & Free South Carolina, powered by South Carolina Federal Credit Union, for being the Thursday Night Lights Last Fans Standing.
The winning students, Evan Huiet and Courtney Michael of Ashley Ridge High School, discovered they were winners during a surprise reveal at the school on November 22. They were led to think they were in trouble, only to walk outside to see a stretch Hummer limo and Young & Free SC representatives awaiting them. (The video of the Last Fans Standing reveal is available on YoungFreeSC.com.)
“Surprising the students and having their principal in on the entire presentation was great! The students were shocked and grateful to have won the grand prize,” said Young & Free SC Spokester Darryl LaPlante.
As the Social Media Sponsor of Thursday Night Lights, Young & Free SC hosted the Last Fans Standing Contest, which encouraged students to get their photo taken at the game of the week and then tag themselves on the Young & Free SC Facebook page. Three photos each week were selected and then a public vote determined a finalist from each week’s game. The public vote determined the grand prize winner.
Thursday Night Lights was an opportunity for local high school football teams to compete live on the MyTV Charleston/Fox Network. The games began August 25 and ran for ten weeks, with the last game being held November 3.
