Will D. Cat at the Nationals
Will D. Cat competes in the annual UCA Mascot National Championship. In order to be eligible to compete, Will must submit a highlight reel of events and moments from the current year. Once the video is compiled and submitted by the students on the mascot team, it is judged and given a score out of 50. Each year, the top 5 videos from the Open Division are chosen to continue to compete in Orlando, FL for a national championship.
The competition in Orlando is based on creating an original skit complete with handmade props and soundtrack to showcase a mascot's character development, creativity, and ability. The skit is judged and given a score out of 50. The original video score is added to the score in Orlando in order to determine the National Champion.
Will D. Cat has gone to compete in Orlando in 2015, 2016, and 2017. He is a two-time fan favorite award winner and has placed as high as second in his division.
