National step show makes stop in Philadelphia

Sprite Step Off is the largest national step competition. With 30 events in 20 cities, undergraduate Greek teams from all over will be able compete for a share of a $1.5 million scholarship prize pool. Competing teams will also be participating in service activities throughout the competition to help the community – all with the overall objective to inspire the youth to attend college. At Saturday’s event, competition starts at 10am and as the prize pool wasn’t enough -- winning fraternity and sorority teams from each of the qualifying round events may have a possible part in the upcoming "Stomp the Yard" sequel, "Stomp the Yard: Homecoming".

The day is still going to be lots of fun for those not competing -- step fans are more than welcome to bring their families to watch the competing teams, the McDonald's Flavor Battle with the hottest DJs and a couple of special musical performances. Folks can also participate in the Sprite Step Off Service Challenge, a collaboration between the National Pan-Hellenic Council and The Boys & Girls Club of America to activate the youth to give back to the community through service. Teams competing in Sprite Step Off can perform and work with the local Boys & Girls Club as well as the youth in attendance – teaching step routines and managing art projects throughout the day.
