Annual Cornhole Tournament Tosses in Hefty Sum for United Way Campaign

Twenty-eight cleverly named teams faced off in the second annual Kent State-United Way Cornhole Tournament, sponsored by the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs.  Teams were sponsored by departments or by student organizations throughout the university - even the Office of the President assembled two teams.  A total of $1,400 was raised for United Way.

The M.A.C.C Champions, with the United Way contribution
First place went to the fiercely competitive M.A.C.C. Champions team, sponsored by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, and second place went to Kent State's Leaders sponsored by the student organization The National Society for Leadership and Success. Both teams won trophies for their efforts. The members of the M.A.C.C. Champions each were awarded gift certificates to the Kent State Bookstore.

 The tournament was made possible with the assistance of the Office of the Provost, the Department of Recreational Services and ABC Rental.  Those supporters provided the space for the competition, the tournament shirts, food and beverages and the cornhole sets.

Congratulations and thanks go to all those who tossed beanbags for United Way:
