The LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic is put on each December as fans, coaches and athletes from around our great state pack the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to watch the last 10 teams standing compete for the Louisiana state football championship in their respective classes.
This year’s Classic will be its 29th annual event and its 28th year held in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
This year’s championship football games will again be held in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Dec. 7 and 8, and State Farm Insurance will once again sponsor the championships. Cajun Industries will also sponsor the poster contest again this year. Since 1984, all LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic posters and souvenir program covers have been designed by students from LHSAA member schools.
The winner of the LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic Poster Contest and his or her teacher will receive free hotel accommodations in New Orleans for one night, a feature article in the souvenir program and free passes to the 2012 LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic.
The winning student and teacher will also be recognized at halftime of one of our 2012 State Championship games.
Past winning posters of the LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic are displayed in the LHSAA executive board room in our Baton Rouge headquarters located off of Old Hammond Highway.
Each entry must be in color, no smaller than an 8 ½ by 11 page and no bigger than a poster size. The design must include the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the title of the event (2012 LHSAA State Farm Prep Classic) and the artist’s signature.
To qualify, contest entries must be received by the LHSAA office prior to Friday, Oct. 5.
