On Friday, Sept. 3, businesses and schools around Acadiana sported Ragin' Cajun red for UL Lafayette.

The day was designated Wear Red Day in celebration of the many contributions the University of Louisiana at Lafayette makes to the community. A friendly competition among businesses and schools wearing red resulted in seven overall winners:

Small business category: Lafayette Chamber of Commerce

Lafayette Chamber of Commerce

Mid-size business category: Lafayette Schools Federal Credit Union

Large business category: Stuller Inc.

Wear Red Spirit Award: McDonalds

Wear Red Sign Award: Cardiovascular Institute of the South

UL Lafayette Campus Award: UL Lafayette Young Professionals

K-12 Schools Award: Sts. Leo-Seton Elementary School.

“ We had a great show of support on this fifth annual Wear Red Day with over 80 businesses and schools sending in digital photos throughout the following week. The response from the community was outstanding,” said Matt Tarver, assistant director for trademark licensing at the university.

A special presentation will be made to the winners during Saturday’s game between Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns and Middle Tennessee at Cajun Field. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.

Photographs submitted by businesses will be displayed on the scoreboard during home games this season.

Wear Red Day was held in conjunction with College Colors Day, a national celebration of the traditions, contributions and achievements of universities everywhere.
