Young & Free Maine supports the
School Spirit Challenge

The school spirit challenge is a friendly competition between schools to show school pride and spirit, all while helping the community. The program is designed to promote the community and good stewardship with students of high schools in Central and Southern Maine through an ongoing food drive to benefit the Good Shepherd Food Bank.

The SSC is all about showing off everything that makes your school a great place to be by demonstrating why you have the best school and the most community spirit.

Schools will compete to raise the most pounds of food this winter. CBS 13 News and FOX23 will feature a different school every Friday on Good Day Maine from Date to Date.

The featured schools are:
1/8 Carrabec (North Anson)
1/15 Hall-Dale (Farmingdale)
1/22 Wiscasset
1/29 Noble (North Berwick)
2/5 Rangeley
2/12 Gray, New Gloucester, & Lisbon
2/26 Maranacook (Readfield)
3/4 School Spirit Challenge Finale (Portland)

The winner of the School Spirit Challenge wins the coveted Spirit Cup Trophy.
