Cow Flop Con­test back for another year

Raises money for Riverview Ru­ral High stu­dents

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

The MacLel­lan Schol­ar­ship Fund Cow Flop Con­test is back for its 15th year of sup­port­ing Riverview Ru­ral High stu­dents with fi­nan­cial aid.

The fund was started af­ter J.J. MacLel­lan died in a mo­tor­cy­cle ac­ci­dent. Each year, two stu­dents from Riverview re­ceive a schol­ar­ship from the pro­ceeds.

The cow flop con­test kicks off Ac­tion Week in Au­gust.

A cow is put in a field with a grid of squares. Each ticket sold rep­re­sents a square. If the cow flop lands on your square, you win.

The ap­prox­i­mate value of the prize if all tick­ets are sold is $5,625. The same amount is given to the Riverview Me­mo­rial Schol­ar­ship ac­count.
