The Program

This fall, POWERADE® is helping student athletes upgrade their school by awarding a total of $50,000 to high school athletic programs across Louisiana and South Mississippi. Ten local high school teams will win $5,000 to spend on whatever your athletic department needs to bring MORE POWER TO YOUR TEAM. POWERADE® wants to see you and your team succeed!
