A packed 1300SMILES Stadium for last weekend's Cowboys v Storm game was no obstacle for local school students battling it out for prizes during LGIAsuper's NRL half time challenge.

Match day sponsor LGIAsuper and the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys hosted the Try for 5! obstacle course for two Garbutt State School students, chosen as a reward for achieving 100% school attendance so far this year! 

In a head-to-head challenge, both students competed in five activities including putting on a Cowboys shirt and an LGIAsuper backpack, kicking a football, hula hooping and wearing an LGIAsuper Howdy Hat while running to the finish line.

Congratulations to Eddie and Henry who both received a football signed by their favourite team and medal for their efforts! 

Try for 5! is run across nine Queensland schools and is designed to challenge, motivate and reward school attendance.

The program is a joint initiative of the Cowboys, Broncos and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
