“Beat OU” Shirt Competition

Student Org Banner Competition 

Participate in Texas Fight Rally and your student organization could win a cash prize! All you have to do is show us your Longhorn spirit!

The $1,000 prize will go to the best overall organization and a $250 prize will be awarded to both the best Greek/Spirit org and the best Non-Greek/Spirit organization. To win, orgs will be scored and ranked based on the following:

  • Incorporation of the parade theme in your organization’s banner and the execution and creativity of banner decoration. Banner must include the name of the student organization.
  • Demonstration of school spirit
  • Participation — Bring as many of your organization’s members as possible! 

The winners of the competition will be announced in front of the Tower during Texas Fight Rally! The 2023 Texas Fight Rally theme is "Cowboys & Corndogs"! Inspired by the State Fair of Texas, the location of the iconic Allstate Red River Rivalry, student organizations participating in the parade must creatively reflect this theme. That may mean incorporating some state fair food on your banner, having your org dress up in western gear, or some wacky combination of the two! Have fun, and be creative! The more unique the better.
