nTelos Announces Annual Pass-for-Cash Winners
December 5, 2011
Virginia-based nTelos Wireless announced today the winners of the 2011 Pass-for-Cash contests, which took place at James Madison University, Virginia Tech and the University of Richmond. Six winning contestants took home a total of $16,500 along with trips for two to Chicago, Miami, Minneapolis, and Phoenix.
More than 9,000 fans registered at home football games or on-line for a chance to participate in the annual Pass-For-Cash contests. Two winners from each participating university were selected in a random drawing to Pass-For-Cash. During halftime of the last home game, selected contestants tossed two regulation size footballs at a target placed 10-yards away. The first ball determined destination, and contestants threw at a “nationwide coverage” map. The football landing near the closest city determined where the contestant would go via two round-trip tickets. The second football toss determined a cash amount, and anyone hitting the bull’s eye could win $5,000.

James Madison University- Nov. 12
