FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 18, 2023) – The Kentucky State Police (KSP) and the University of Louisville (UofL) are partnering together to award two elementary or middle school basketball teams a chance to attend a women’s cardinal’s game. Teams can enter the giveaway by submitting their team photograph to KSP where it will be placed on the agency’s Facebook page. The two school teams that receive the most ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ combined earn tickets to either the UofL against UNC game on February 5, 2023, or UofL against Clemson on February 12, 2023. The winning teams will also receive a meet and greet with the KSP mascot ‘Justice’.
The giveaway is part of the agency’s mission to develop and fortify community partnerships. KSP Public Affairs Commander Paul Blanton says the contest is a win for everyone.
“KSP and the University of Louisville value our youngest Kentuckians, and it’s important for us to provide a positive experience that will last for many years to come,” said Capt. Blanton. “Our partnerships with schools and colleges strengthens our footprint in local communities and creates opportunities to impact youth in an encouraging way.”

“We are extremely thankful for our partnership with the Kentucky State Police and the opportunity they are giving these young athletes to attend one of our games,” said Walz. “We have an incredible group of young women on our team and hope they can become role models that these elementary and middle school students can look up to.”
