Raffles, Door Prizes, and Games
- A raffle is an activity in which participants buy a chance to win an item or service. For example, if I ask you to pay $1.00 for a ticket, which will be placed among several others, from which one will be randomly selected for a prize, this is a raffle.
- If you plan to organize a raffle, you must apply for a raffle license from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office at least thirty days prior to your event.
- For more information on this process, visit the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office’s website.
Door Prize Drawings
- Placing names in a bowl for a chance to win a prize, and no money is exchanged, is a door prize drawing.
- At Georgia Tech, door prizes are permitted and do not need approval; however they must adhere to the USG's Conference Giveaway policy.
- In addition to contacting local vendors for inflatables and novelty items, Georgia Tech students and staff can reserve a variety of fun activities from the Resource Garage, maintained by the Residence Hall Association.
- An updated inventory list is maintained on their website, which includes items such as karaoke machines, board games, lawn games, and popcorn and snow cone machines.
- For outdoor fun, the Campus Recreation Center rents a variety of game equipment for daily or extended use. Visit their website for a list of available equipment and costs.
