MSC HometownHero Header


The MEAC SWAC Challenge Kickoff and Celebration Bowl launched #Hometownheroes as a way to honor essential workers who continue to serve and keep our economy going during the COVID-19 crisis. Those unsung heroes include store clerks, bus drivers, sanitation workers, first responders, delivery drivers, restaurant workers, postal workers, and many others. Individuals can nominate as many people as they like. Each nominees’  names will be displayed for recognition on the virtual walls of each event’s websites. Each week four nominees will be selected as “Home Town Heroes of The Week”. Those individuals will be provided additional acknowledgment for their work and service.


During the MEAC SWAC Challenge and Celebration Bowl select nominees will be provided tickets to each game and sit in our designated Home Town Heroes section where they will be recognized during the game.


The campaign will run from May 26ththrough November 30th and will be promoted via social media and radio via #hometownheroes. Individuals can register their nominations by visiting and
