Sponsorships are now being taken for tiny yellow rubber ducks as they get ready for their Oct. 24 race to raise scholarship funds during the 81st annual Homecoming celebration at Stephen. F. Austin State University.

            Ducks may be sponsored for $5 per duck, six ducks for $25, 12 for $50, 18 for $75 or 24 for $100.  The deadline for sponsoring ducks is Oct. 23.

Prizes totaling $2,400 will be awarded to holders of winning ducks.  The prizes include $1,000 SFA Scholarship, Jack Backers College Bookstore, grand prize; 2nd runner up, $500 set of tires, Boatman Tire and Service; 3rd runner up, $500 Scholarship, SFA Barnes & Noble Bookstore; 4th runner up, $100 gift card, Wal-Mart; 5th runner up, $100 gift certificate, Tem-Kil; 6th runner up, $100 gift certificate, Casa Tomas; and 7th runner up, $100 gift certificate, KFC.

Funds raised by the various special events during Homecoming go into the SFA Alumni Scholarship Fund.  Proceeds from the Silent Auction, Duck Dash, Benefit Drawing, alumni golf tournament and other activities combined to raise more than $74,000 last year.
