Rubber Chicken

  • The "Rubber Chicken" spirit contest is a cheering competition between Lewis and Clark and Ferris High Schools. Josh Collins, ASB President at Lewis and Clark in 1983, suggested to his counterpart at Ferris that a student competition between the two schools might serve to increase student spirit at both schools. The idea was accepted by both schools and an ugly rubber chicken was chosen to symbolize a reward deeply sought, but having no actual value.

    Since 1983, the rules have undergone many evolutions. Currently, the student bodies are judged on sportsmanship, creativity, attendance, volume, drill team performance at half-time, application of events to the school or Rubber Chicken theme. Parents, younger siblings, middle school students, and community members from both schools attend the game en masse each year.

    From its humble beginnings the "Rubber Chicken Game" has grown into an event which increases student spirit, provides for increased student and community involvement and enriches the coffers of the league.
