Blog entry A Very Different Bowl Game

28 January 2011

This February, as you gear up for the Superbowl, you can take part in a very different kind of bowl game with the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees and students across the country.

Running from February 6 - 12, the Rice Bowl Challenge sees two teams compete for the championship. The objective? To raise rice and tackle global hunger while proving intellectual strength. The three top players will win a Brees-autographed football!

You don't need to be a student to take part, you can be young or old, a sports fan or not...

Pick your team! And don't forget to challenge your friends and family.

See you at the Ricebowl pitch on February 6!

I've also got some of my rice missing. Earlier this week I hit the 50k mark, and today I logged in to find I was only at 43k, and I was no longer a member of the Students rice bowl group.

Does anyone know why the reports of my rice are gone?

I'm on Team Drew for the Rice Bowl Challenge. GO TEAM DREW!

I didn't put my state letters in front of my name, because I logged in directly from Facebook. The rules say that I need to do this.

Do I need to sign up with a new name? Or can you change my name so that my name is in accordance with your rules? If you can change my name, can you make it MSjill?

I know that this begins February 6... and thanks for a great way to include people to help others.

So do you have to be in the group MLTI to be a part of the Rice Bowl? or if I play for any group(like Free Rice for Africa ps join please!)does it count?

Oh Jes - you need to ensure that when you are earning rice that you are playing in your group. To ensure that you are either go to the group profile page and click "Play" or take a look at the toolbar above and select the option "Select a group", select in your case Drew's group, and click "Play".

A note on the side: only the rice being raised between Feb 6 and 12 count in the challenge!

Good luck!

Hello, I just signed up and picked my team. :) When I play, it looks like the total is going toward Drees' total rice count, but under the members list, it still shows my total rice count as zero. Why is that?
