This year we expanded the MMA vs. MMA participation challenge to include SUNY and due to that change we have started the Maritime Alumni Participation challenge. We are excited to welcome SUNY and look forward to another fun competition.

This year instead of the full month of April the challenge will run from April 1-18.

The Maine, Massachusetts, and SUNY Maritime are competing to see who can capture, in 18 days, the greatest number of gifts from their alumni. Every alumnus who makes a gift (the amount does not matter, it is only that you participate) during the first 18 days of April counts toward helping your Maritime School win! It is not about which school raises the most money, it's who finishes with the highest alumni participation online, over the phone, in the mail, or in person … every gift counts!

The winner holds the title of Maritime Alumni Participation Challenge Champion for a year, but the losers have to fly the flag of the winning Academy on their campus for a day next fall when the winning Academy travels to their campus for a game (OUCH)! To make sure your school's flag is flying high, you need to make your best gift and be counted!

Let’s see who is going to be the first winner of the Maritime Alumni Participation Challenge. The warning gun has sounded and the flag is down! Make your best gift and encourage your fellow alumni to do the same!

Gifts must be received between April 1- April 18. Challenge winner will be announced on April 19!
