Dear Community, 

February Greetings – the shortest month of the year but just as exciting on so many levels.  

Since June 29th, I have received countless suggestions on what the new mascot should be for Region 20. Over that time, I explained that there would be a process. Now, with the permission of the Region 20 Board of Education, I am excited to welcome you to what we have termed “Mascot Madness.”   

Starting tomorrow, February 2nd, nominations will open for anyone, and everyone, to submit an idea for the Region 20 mascot. Nominations will close at 5:00 p.m. on February 17th. Nominations are made by sending an email with your mascot suggestion to cleone@rsd20.org  

During the week of February 20th, all nominations will be reviewed. Please remember that this is not about a past mascot (for either LPS or RSD6) but about a new future.  

On Tuesday, February 28th, we will have a live announcement that places every approved nomination into a bracket. Once the brackets are set, we will adhere to the following voting windows:   

March 2nd – March 5th – 1st Round  March 9th – March 12th – 2nd Round  March 16th – March 19th – Final 16  March 23rd – March 26th – Quarterfinals  March 30th – April 2nd – Semi Finals / Finals  

On April 3rd the district will announce the winner! 

As we head into this fun event remember you can follow Region 20, and “Mascot Madness” updates, on social media as follows:
