Spirit and tradition are at the heart of the college experience, and donning your colors is among the best ways to show pride and loyalty to your school. Any day is a great day to rock your Utah red and white, but Fridays are taking an edge with a $100 payoff and a $1,000 shopping spree as your possible rewards.

Beginning Aug. 21, 2017, Utah Red Zone and America First Credit Union are kicking off Red & White Fridays for the second semester. This weekly opportunity for Utah fans near and far to show off their best Utah attire, enters you to win one of many prizes from Utah Red Zone. Students, staff, alumni and fans love to rep their Ute colors and we want to see how you Utah.

Between January and May of this year we selected a total of nine $100 gift card winners, and Madelyn Carter ultimately took home the $1,000 grand prize. You could be one of this semester’s luck winners by just following these three simple steps.

Step 1: Snap a photo of yourself, your friends, your family or even your pet wearing red and white Utah gear.

Step 2: Tag Utah Red Zone and America First Credit Union on Instagram.

Step 3: Post your photo using #RedWhiteFridays.

Snap, tag, post — it’s that simple.

Each Friday, a winner will be selected from the dedicated Utah fans who post a photo wearing red or white with the tag #RedWhiteFridays. Winners will be announced via social media, so keep your eyes on Utah Red Zone channels to see if you win. You must claim your prize within 48 hours or another winner will be selected.

Winners will receive a $100 gift card, redeemable at any Utah Red Zone location including main campus, Sandy, Sandy One, Layton and West Jordan. Gift cards may also be redeemed online at Weekly winners will be automatically entered to win the Grand Prize giveaway — a $1,000 private shopping spree for Ute merchandise at the University Campus Store.
