Lake Erie College in Need of Fight Song
-The College invites creative minds to enter Fight Song Contest for bragging rights and $200-
(PAINESVILLE, OHIO) – A school can’t have a football team without a fight song, which is why Lake Erie College is kicking off a search for its first-ever fight song by hosting a nationwide contest. With the announcement of the start of a football program at a formerly all-female institution, the winner of the Lake Erie College Fight Song Contest will earn bragging rights and $200.
Any individual who wants to plant themselves in the College’s history should put their musical talents to work to help bring the raging storm into battle by creating a 15-30 second fight song. Lyrics must include the word “Storm” and “Lake Erie College” and must be such that they can be sung/chanted alone if no pep band or music accompaniment is available.
Additionally, lyrics must be original and the tune must be original or in the public domain. If the tune is an original composition, it would become the property of Lake Erie College. If the tune is in public domain, documentation must be submitted.
The deadline to enter is 5 p.m. on January 8, 2007. Judging will take place January 9-12 with current Lake Erie College students making the final decision during a voting period that will take place from January 16-19. The winner will be announced during half-time of the men’s home basketball game on February 3 against LaRoche at 6 p.m.
The fight song should be submitted on CD or cassette tape, accompanied by a paper copy of the lyrics and music, as well as an entry form that can be obtained by visiting the College’s website at www.lec.edu. Submission materials can be sent to Kathleen Lawry, public relations and marketing specialist, at 391 W. Washington St., Painesville, OH 44077.
