What is new this year?
The Communities In Schools Duck Derby is moving to Northwest Georgia Amphitheater, located at Benton Place Campus, next to the Catoosa County Colonnade.
New ways to win! This year ducks will be entered in one of several qualifying races. The first 5 ducks will advance to the Grand Derby for a chance to win $1,000. The first duck to cross the finish line in each qualifying race will win a $100 Visa gift card.
By purchasing a VID, Very Important Duck, you will be entered into a race in which only the VID's will compete for a chance to win $250. The first 25 VID's to cross the finish line will move on to the Grand Derby for a chance to win $1,000. For every VID you purchase your name will also be entered in the drawing for the TV. VID's are limited. Only 200 will be sold.
What is the Duck Derby?
The Communities In Schools Duck Derby is a "must see" event where hundreds of numbered rubber ducks are and will then race toward the finish line to win great prizes for their adoptive parents. If your lucky duck is the first to cross the finish line, you will win the grand prize of $1,000! Additional Prizes will be given away to the next 9 ducks to cross the finish line. And just for purchasing a duck, your name will be entered into a drawing for a TV!
