EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU), partnering with Michigan State University Athletics, is excited to announce the 2017 MSUFCU Kickoff Kids Contest, where a few lucky children will join the Spartans on the sidelines for each MSU home football game this season, running onto the field to retrieve the kicking tee after every kickoff.


From August 1, to November 10, parents and guardians of interested children between the ages of six and 11 can submit an entry form on MSUFCU’s website. Each winner will receive a sideline pass for the Kickoff Kid, two game day tickets (to be used by the parents/guardians), an MSU football jersey, and a parking pass. Children and their parents/guardians do not need to be members to win.


“We are happy to partner with MSU Athletics in the MSUFCU’s Kickoff Kids Contest for the ninth consecutive year,” said Deidre Davis, MSUFCU’s Chief Marketing Officer. “The contest provides a memorable experience to children in our community, allowing them to be a part of the game and show their Spartan spirit right from the sidelines. Game days in East Lansing are an incredible showcase of community solidarity, and we enjoy providing a unique opportunity for children to participate in the fun.”


MSUFCU has a national reputation for excellence and has received several top industry and workplace awards. In 2016, the Credit Union was named the #1 Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press and one of Fortune magazine’s 50 Best Workplaces for New College Grads as well as ranked fifth in the nation for its financial education program by the National Youth Involvement Board. MSUFCU also was named one of West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest companies to Work For, receiving the Michigan Business Professional Association’s top Elite Overall – Best of the Best award. This year, MSUFCU was named Outstanding Credit Union of the Year by the Michigan Credit Union League.
