Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Continues Sponsorship of Gridiron Classic

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi continues its support of a healthy Mississippi as the title sponsor of the Mississippi High School Activities Association’s 2017 championship football games for Class 1-6A schools.

The 2017 Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Gridiron Classic will take place December 1-2 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at the University of Mississippi in Oxford. In addition to serving as title sponsor of the Gridiron Classic, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi also supports the Text to Win Contest as part of the Gridiron Classic. The Text to Win Contest gives fans another way to support their team by texting in during the days leading up to each championship game. The team with the most text entries at the end of each game receives $1,000 to be earmarked for its physical education program.

“Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi is proud to support Mississippi high school athletics and believes these programs are helping to establish a strong foundation for healthy habits throughout life,” said Meredith Bailess, Director of Corporate Communications with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. “Our partnership with the Mississippi High School Activities Association furthers our shared commitment to a healthy future for our students and our state.”
