"It will be homecoming week for the Blue Devils, so it can definitely show Wayne school spirit, but participants can submit photos with Wayne State school spirit, Husker pride, or whatever team or school they support."

The public can then vote on which photo shows the most spirit via and the winning photo will receive a prize.

The School Spirit photo contest is sponsored by Exhaust Pros Total Car Care, AquaPop, The 4th Jug, W.W. Galore, Two Mile Island Auto and Pac 'N' Save. The contest will run from Oct. 1-Oct. 12.
