Club Competition

This year there will be a club competition on the ballot! You can choose to allocate one dollar ($1.00) to any recognized student club or organization. So if 100 people select the Matador Rock Club, that club will receive $100 dollars for their group. Even if only one person votes for the Matador Rock Club, that group will still receive one dollar. This dollar comes from the A.S. fee that students have already paid, it will not cost you anything!
