Scholarship Auction: MASCOE is asking each state to bring an item or basket to be auctioned during the MWA Rally on Friday, April 28th. They are also requesting each state bring a $25 gift card for the “Gift Card Basket” which can be won by all bids, including the previous winning bids. Please selected gift cards that can be used no matter where the winner resides. Bids are $20 each and can be purchased along with your registration in advance or at the MWA Rally!

If you purchase multiple bids, once one of your bids is drawn, it will be left out of any subsequent drawing, but you will still have your other bids left in for any subsequent bids until drawn.
