Leadership Tahlequah hosting Duck Race

TAHLEQUAH — Leadership Tahlequah Class 17 will host the annual Duck Race on Saturday, April 26, during the Red Fern Festival.

The Duck Race will begin at 3 p.m. and winners will be announced at 5 p.m. Participants do not have to be present to win and will have 10 business days to claim their prizes.

Ducks are available for purchase in advance by contacting a member of Leadership Tahlequah Class 17 or the Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce. They will also be sold both days of the Red Fern Festival at the Chamber of Commerce booth. Ducks are $5 for one duck or $20 for five ducks.

The first place prize is $500, second place is $250, and third place is $100. Proceeds will benefit the Backpack program at Tahlequah Public Schools.

“Leadership Tahlequah 17 is excited about taking on the task of the annual Duck Race. Our class decided to raise money for the Backpack program at TPS. Giving back to our community means a lot to the class members,” said Ariann Schilling, NeoHealth public relations coordinator and Class 17 member. “The children in our community are the next generation of leaders for Tahlequah, and what better way to show how much we love our town by helping out a great cause.”

The Duck Race is one of many activities scheduled during the Red Fern Festival. The class will also be selling “I (heart) Tahlequah” T-shirts and red ferns during the festival to raise money for their class project.
