In the past, Southern California has given cash and/or material prizes to the top teams. A few years ago, the contest was divided into two divisions: community college and 4-year schools. A separate prize will be given to the top-ranking community college team.
Each team registered by the on-time registration date will receive up to four t-shirts. The size will be determined by the registration information. T-shirts are ordered two weeks prior to the contest. Anyone registered at that time whose size is missing will receive a t-shirt in size XL. Teams not registered by the on-time registration date will not receive t-shirts.Often other gifts may be provided. These vary from year-to-year.
