This year, thanks to the generosity of the Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company, students have the chance to win a door prize including one Monster Energy drink branded mountain bike, one vitaminwater cooler or four smartwater skateboards. For an opportunity to win, students must complete a Block Party passport. Students collect passport stamps at specific tents to be eligible for the drawing. Due to administrative restrictions, foreign students are not eligible to participate.
