Best Team Name Awards

Special team awards will be presented to the best team name in the Senate Team Division and in the House Team Division. We encourage Team Captains to create team names that feature the name of the Member or Committee which the team is representing. Be creative. The Best Team name awards will be presented shortly after race day on a date to be determined. For a list of previous Best Team Name winners, click here.
