Dear WVU Homecoming Parade Participant:

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the West Virginia University Homecoming Parade on Friday, October 9, 2015. The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. and all of our participants must be in the appropriate location by 5:45 p.m. 

We are always encouraged by the University and community response to this activity that all seem to enjoy. But, for our parade to be successful, we need to insure that all participants are well informed of the City of Morgantown and University guidelines for this event. Please make sure you and your organization read and understand the enclosed Homecoming Parade Rules and Regulations.

To expedite the planning of the parade, please complete the enclosed application and return a $50.00 entry fee as indicated below:

Make all checks payable to WVU S.H.O.P. and indicate “Homecoming Parade” on the memo line of the check. Entry fee is due with the application. No cash or ATM cards will be accepted.
Groups/Individuals which are exempt from the $50 fee: * Non-Profit Organizations * Pageant Winners (Mr. & Miss) * WVU Student Organizations & Departments * Current Public Officials

Every other group, including political candidates who are not a current public official, will have to pay the $50 entry fee to be allowed entry into the parade. These fees go directly to our WVU S.H.O.P. (Students Helping Other People) program. This program, through our office, provides funds to
underprivileged Morgantown-area children to purchase presents, clothes, and jackets for themselves and/or their families for the holidays. In December, WVU students escort the children to a local department store to help them pick out what they want. Even if you are exempt, please consider making a donation, of any amount, to this program.

Application deadline is  Friday, September 25, 2015. Entries must be postmarked by this date.

There will be an additional $10.00 fee for late applications.
If you have any questions regarding the West Virginia University Homecoming Parade, feel free to contact our office (304-293-4397). We look forward to your participation in our annual Homecoming Parade and other activities at West Virginia University.

Sincerely yours,
Megan Sheil
Homecoming Coordinator – Office of Student Engagement and Leadership
