Fundraiser - Crazy Hat Day Fundraiser

Dick Moss, Editor, Physical Education Update.com

The Crazy Hats Day Fundraiser is an entertaining way to raise money within your school.

How to Organize
Choose a day in which, for a fee, students and staff can wear their wackiest hat to school.

When they enter the school, participants must first go to a check-in table, where they pay their fee (i.e. one or two dollars) and get their hand stamped. The hand stamps let teachers know the fee has been paid. The check-in table also lets the judges see every hat.

At the end of the day, the judging panel announces the winners of the contest. More than one winner could be selected, if you use categories such as most creative, largest, or best home-made hat.

Winners receive a prize or a printed award (see the reproducible pdf version of this article - the link is at the bottom of this page). Announce the winner at an assembly or over the loudspeaker.

Option
Rather than have a registration table, home room teachers could collect the fees, stamp hands and make their nominations for best hats - this is often a more efficient method.
