Fundraising Feature: Super Splash Party Prize Program

Why schools love putting a splash in their sale.

School fundraising ideas that incorporate a Big Event Prize Program are some of our most successful fundraisers, and nothing will get students thinking about summer quite like a Super Splash Party. This Big Event brings all the magic and fun of a water wonderland to your school for an all-out experience that students will remember for years.

What is a Super Splash Party?

The Super Splash Party is a Big Event prize program that brings outrageous inflatable party games to your school—all with the wet ‘n’ wild fun that students will love. Whether students find themselves on the massive slip ‘n’ slide or in the water tag arena, they will make lasting memories with their friends. The Super Splash party also includes traditional midway games, so even folks who want to stay dry can enjoy the fun. The fun flush soaker and giant waterslide have also become enduring favorites of schools that select a Super Splash Party for their fundraising reward.

Why should we host a Super Splash Party?

Schools that choose to fundraise in the spring semester have many incentives to host a Big Event prize program, like the Super Splash Party, at the end of their fundraiser. First, schools take advantage of warmer outdoor climes as the summer heat gradually approaches. Additionally, many teachers, especially in elementary school, are eager to take advantage of the benefits of constructive play, and the Super Splash Party is an innovative and exciting opportunity for just that.

The end of the year also tends to be when principals and teachers look for ways to celebrate the entire academic year. A Splash Party will allow students to make some final memories of another year of grade school with their best friends with the nominal entry fee of a small item sales requirement in their school fundraiser.

All Big Event prize programs are designed to allow more students to participate by lowering the item requirements for entry. A Splash Party might be the trick if your school has been struggling with getting students engaged.

What are the benefits of a Super Splash Party?

The wide appeal and accessibility of these events for students and schools is a major benefit. Schools are often motivated by the chance to earn a Super Splash Party for free by reaching gross sales of $50,000. Cost sharing for gross sales less than $50,000 is scaled but still affordable for schools of various sizes with differing goals.

A Super Splash Party may also incentivize more students to get involved in selling items because the item requirements to participate are lower. And you don’t have to worry about a low barrier to entry stifling sales. The Super Splash party has built-in incentives for higher item requirements as well! This prize program is a win-win for schools and students.

Consider the Super Splash Party this spring if you want to refresh your school fundraising program. It will motivate sales and help your school reach its fundraising goals when paired with the perfect product or brochure fundraiser.
