For all students entered in the contest they are given 15 seconds to moo like a cow. The judges can then pick the top 3 mooers and have a final moo-off that consists of another 15-second individual moo and a 30 second group moo to see who will be crowned top mooer.
2. Find the Missing Moo
Clues are given every morning during the announcements that guide the participants to the missing cow that is somewhere within your school. The winner is the person who successfully solves the clues and finds the missing cow.
3. Bovine Day
Everyone in the school can come dressed as a cow, a farmer, in black and white or anything related to a dairy farm. Use your imagination and have fun for the day.
4. Ice Castle Building
Have students bring blocks of frozen ice in a 2-litre milk carton. At noon hour everyone gets together and builds an ice castle or you can spell your school’s name out in ice blocks. Put food coloring in the water to build the castle in your school’s colors. After, you can sell or offer hot chocolate milk to warm everyone up!
You can have an individual competition or a team competition where it is a race to consume a fixed quantity of milk. You can also run this competition using baby bottles or drinking through a straw. A word of caution…if the milk is too cold you may end up with ice-cream headaches!
6. Noon-Hour Barn Dance
Hold a dance in the gym at lunch hour and have reduced admission prices for those bringing an empty milk carton or proof of milk purchase from your school canteen/cafeteria
7. Four Legged Cow Race
Three students per team. Team members stand side by side and tie touching legs together so that you have four legs. Then you have a set racecourse that all teams must go through. Best time wins. OR the race is between individuals who go through the course on all fours. You could give a prize to the winning team and the best-dressed team.
8. Milky Way Obstacle Race
You design an obstacle course in the gym that the participants must go through. Ideas for stations include:
- Balancing an empty milk carton on a spatula and running
- Filling an empty milk carton at one end of the course with water carried in a turkey baster from the other end of the course.
- Create obstacles out of empty 2 litre milk cartons that students must go over or around without knocking them down.
9. Milk & Cookie Sale
The student council, band, school sport team or any other school group could use this activity as a fundraiser. The group can bake cookies themselves or purchase them and resell the cookies with milk for a small profit.
10. Dress All In White Day Or White Out Wednesday
Everyone in the school is asked to dress in all white for the day. Your halls will become a sea of white.
