In the Game Award Nominations Now Open!

Does your school have what it takes to be the Minnesota Football Program of the Year? Tell us what makes your program unique and your school could be presented with the “In the Game Award,” at the 2016 Minnesota Football Honors. In addition, the Vikings, Innovative in partnership with The Hon Company and KFAN will “takeover” the winning community and bring Vikings players, cheerleaders and Viktor to the winning school for a presentation of the $10,000 check.

A portion of that money will also be donated to specific programs in the winning community to encourage all kids to engage in their community despite any financial set-backs as part of Innovative’s Insports foundation.
