School Spirit Squads

On Your Mark, Get Set, Cheer!

Is your squad ready to perform for more than 20,000 people? There’s no better time or place than in the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon School Spirit Competition! This one-day event is judged on how spirited, creative, and vocal your squad can be as you cheer 20,000 participants to the finish line. This is not a skill-based competition.

The competition is open to any high school cheerleading squad and there is no registration fee to participate! Cash prizes will be awarded to the top five teams as voted by the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon School Spirit Competition judges. The competition will be limited to 15 squads and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Submit your application today! Applications must be received no later than April 1, 2024.
Please contact Sarah Shoffner at 317-614-6163 or for more information.
