The Varsity `S' Club, the Nittany Lion Club, and Dave Joyner, Acting Athletic Director are proud to present a challenge for former Penn State Varsity Athletes (Varsity `S' Club members). The Penn State Alumni Challenge for Former Student-Athletes will provide former student-athletes with the opportunity to show support for the teams they participated in while wearing the blue and white. Former student-athletes of each team will compete against the other teams to have the highest percentage of former student-athletes supporting Penn State Athletics. This past year, the Varsity `S' Club is proud to announce that more than 2,000 former student-athletes represented their teams by supporting Penn State Athletics through the Nittany Lion Club.

The challenge will run through the 2012-2013 fiscal year (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013), and will enable former student-athletes to have the opportunity to provide their varsity team with two $6,000 prizes. The two ways in which the challenge can be won are: to be the sport with the highest percentage of former student-athletes giving to Penn State Athletics or to be the sport with the highest percentage increase in giving from former student-athletes compared to the 2011-2012 academic year to Penn State Athletics. All 31 current varsity sports and their former student-athletes will be included in the challenge. The men's and women's ice hockey programs will not be eligible to with the higher percentage increase of former student-athletes compared to the 2011-2012 academic year since they were not varsity programs at that time. The challenge provides an avenue for each team to compete against each other to see who can show the most support to its program throughout the year.
