Presidents Bowl Committee is a non-profit corporation committed to the fundraising and support of the booster clubs of Washington, Lincoln, and Roosevelt High Schools in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Each year, a committee of hundreds of parent-volunteers plan and execute a variety of fundraising activities. The activities are designed to raise equitable allocations for the three high schools. The committee started its first planning in 1991, and the first Presidents Bowl football game(s) were played in the fall of 1992. Over the years, various events have been added. Currently, the Presidents Bowl activities include a 1mile, 5k or 10k run/walk, a junior football clinic, a cheer clinic and finishing with a youth basketball tournament. The Presidents Bowl Committee’s vision for the future is to continue to grow each event and add additional events, with a strong focus on the integration of the public schools and the community. The success of the Presidents Bowl has been made possible by the generous support of hundreds of merchants in the Sioux Falls business community. With their financial support, these fine stewards purchase advertisements in the commemorative program, donate in-kind gifts and lend their good names to the effort of Presidents Bowl family-friendly events. The Presidents Bowl Committee has raised nearly two million dollars for over 50 programs within Washington, Roosevelt, and Lincoln high schools. The money raised has paid for travel, uniforms, equipment, and programs that have provided and enhanced educational opportunities for students. Now, with educational funding for public schools under increasing scrutiny, the Presidents Bowl sponsors will play a vital role in enhancing public schools’ programming for school-related activities.
