 Mon., October 8th - Fri., December 14th!

RULES:

  • Each school represents their own Fantasy Football Team. 
  • Your team name will be your high school name. 
  • Points are accumulated based on the scoring system found below. 
  • If a school gets 100% Voter Registration done the first week - that is awesome! You can still earn points for the following weeks through posting on social media, registering other high schools, doing voter engagement activities at your school, etc.
  • If your school has done a VRD already (anytime from the Inspire2Vote training until Oct. 7th) your total will be counted towards the first week of the League (Oct. 8-12).
  • Each school must turn in their weekly totals every Friday by 5PM in the online form at Fantasy Football Points Submission Form.
    •  It is best to have 1 Inspired Leader or teacher designated to submitting your points each week so there is less confusion. All forms and pledge cards must be mailed to your regional manager/coordinator on Fridays. If you need a prepaid label, let Olivia or Alexa know by Friday at 3:00 PM. If you have questions about the Fantasy Football Points Form and how to tally up your points, contact Olivia (304-382-1497).
  • Updated scores will be announced every Monday on this webpage and on the Inspire U.S. Instagram                                   --> @inspirewestvirginia <--Follow the Instagram now!
  • The League runs from Monday, October 8th - Friday, December 14th. The winner will be announced Monday, December 17th.  

POINTS:

VOTER REGISTRATION

  • 1 point per voter registration form
  • 1 point per pledge card (this includes cards for anyone who pledges to vote or pledges to register when eligible)
  • X2 points per every matched voter reg form and pledge card. So if you get 1 person to complete BOTH the voter registration form AND the pledge card, that is 4 points total.
    • FOR EXAMPLE: If Inspire High School registers 10 students...
      • 3 of those students were already registered so they ONLY completed “Pledge to Vote” cards = 3 POINTS
      • 2 students registered for the first time and ONLY completed a voter registration form = 2 POINTS
      • 5 students were new registrations and completed BOTH the voter registration form and the pledge card = 20 POINTS
        25 POINTS TOTAL
  • 15 points for scheduling a big VRD for AFTER the Election (Nov. 7th or after) - must confirm with teacher/administration and Olivia/Alexa that this is a confirmed date
  • 50 points - Complete 85% voter registration of senior class for Jennings Randolph Award BY DECEMBER 19th (for more details on this contact Olivia or Alexa)
  • 50 points - Complete and turn in Honorary Secretary of State Application BY DECEMBER 19th (for more details on this contact Olivia or Alexa)

GET OUT THE VOTE (GOTV)

  • 15 points per GOTV plan per school (signed page confirming busing/walking to the polls, carpooling, scheduled day to present WV Voter Tool to your classes/peers, etc.) - If you have questions about what a “GOTV plan” means contact Olivia or Alexa
  • 10 points per person (student) who makes a "Plan to Vote" on WV Voter Tool.
    Let us know how many students you presented the tool to and your estimate for how many of them filled out the “Make a Plan” section. We can match this up on the back end!
  • 25 points per school for obtaining a SAMPLE BALLOT from your county clerk and sending it to Olivia or Alexa
  • 25 points for voter education meeting prior to early voting/election day. We can provide all of the materials and information needed for this meeting. It is just up to you to get a date approved by your administration and host it. You can also use the WV Voter Tool to do the Voter Education Meeting and walk your peers through how to use the tool

VOTER ENGAGEMENT

  • 25 points if you register another school to vote (Go to school and actually host a VRD. Cannot just register 1 friend you know from another school randomly. If you need help figuring out how to do this, ask Olivia or Alexa)
  • 45 points if you go to a Vocational/Technical school to register those students to vote (Go to school and actually host a VRD. Cannot just register 1 friend you know from that school randomly. If you need help figuring out how to do this, ask Olivia or Alexa)
  • 25 points if you attend a local candidate forum, debate, etc. or host something similar at your school. Must show proof you attended forum (picture, a small description of who was there, etc.)

SOCIAL MEDIA: Use #inspire2vote and #iwvfantasyfootball

  • All social media posts must be unique. You cannot simply post the same tweet or picture 5 times and get 25 points for it. They all must be at least slightly different.
  • It is not required but it is encouraged for each school to start their own social media page for Inspire. This just makes it easier for us to count up the social media posts. Email tammie.statler@inspire-usa.org for help with your Logo.
