We started the Jersey Contest because so many teams wore a special jersey for the Play 4 Tay tournament that incorporated something about Tay, whether it was her jersey #25, lime green, a gold ribbon, the number 4, "Play 4 Tay", "Live 4 Tay", "Filorimo", etc.
The details are on the flyer, but teams collect money from fans for votes. Whichever team in each age group that collects the most "votes" wins!
ALL money donated through the Jersey Contest goes into the Taylor Filorimo Scholarship Fund.
