ABOUT THE BOWL-A-THON
WHAT: The Sioux Empire Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon supports South Dakota by raising the necessary funds for JA Programs in students in grades K-12. 

Junior Achievement provides community volunteers the chance to tell kids about their real-world-experiences along with the teaching of JA's 3 Pillars of Success: Financial Literacy, Work Readiness, and Entrepreneurship. 

Participation in the 2019 Sioux Empire Bowl-a-Thon will allow Junior Achievement of South Dakota to recruit and train the community volunteers, purchase materials for the classroom, and provide the chance for success for all South Dakota students. 

HOW: A team is made up of (5) bowlers and the total team fee is $375 ($75 per person). Participants can either get sponsored by their company or organization, pay the event fee themselves, or fundraise through family, friends, colleagues, and the community. 

All teams are encouraged to fundraise $600 to support (1) JA Classroom for the 2020-21 school year. That's $120 per person - it's as easy as asking 12 people for only $10! Prizes and awards given to those teams who reach this goal.

DETAILS: 2-hours of bowling, nacho bar, t-shirts, bowl bingo, prizes box, and more!
