Whether welcoming students back for the new semester, sorority and fraternity social events, university fundraisers or alumni activities, the Prize Wheel is a fun and interactive way to draw a crowd.
Consider giveaways imprinted with your university logo. Even better, have the mascot from your football team on hand to take part in the fun. Set up the Prize Wheel in the quad of the university and watch students and faculty line up for their turn to win.
CP Federal Credit Union uses a variety of tools, including the Prize Wheel, to teach students about money. Play coins are given to spinners who must count the correct amount of change in order to win a prize.
Kelly Hatler, a credit union development educator and federal financial-education specialist for the credit union said,

The Prize Wheel isn’t just for prizes.
Many customers use the Prize Wheel as an educational tool… inside and outside of the classroom.
Questions can be added to the front of the Prize Wheel. And since each of the slots on the Wheel can be easily replaced with new questions, you can keep the game fresh.
Use the Prize Wheel to engage students.
- Teach spelling to young children by adding images of animals (e.g. C-A-T)
- Add periodic element symbols (e.g. Ca=calcium, Al=aluminum)
- Add words to the Wheel for students to name the part of speech (e.g. table=noun)
The Skokie Public Library did an amazing job customizing the 18-Slot Tabletop Prize Wheel with photos taken for their “10 Things” program.
Photos were taken of the program’s masked mascot with each of the prizes that were available.
Everyone who completed the 10 Things program had a ticket in a briefcase. Tickets were pulled at random and the person got to spin the wheel to win something.
