Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department is looking for some of the Badger Men's Basketball team's biggest, smallest fans. Your kid could win the chance to take the court at the Kohl Center thanks to their new contest.

Sixteen kids from across the state will be randomly selected and invited to participate in an on-court presentation as part of the 2015 NCAA Finalist banner ceremony. That's happening before the game on Friday, November 13, when Wisconsin takes on Western Illinois.

Winners will also get three tickets to the game, an official Badgers jersey, a shout out on the video board during halftime and a pizza party dinner.

In order to participate, kids MUST be in 4th, 5th or 6th grade and be comfortable in front of large crowds. Additionally, the kids MUST participate in a ceremony rehearsal on Friday, November 13 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. No exceptions.

The contest is going on now until Monday, October 19 at 5 p.m. Winners will be contacted the week of October 19.
