The Dragons MVP Program, uses the marketing power of Dayton Dragons Baseball as an educational tool for fourth and fifth grade teachers, helping them motivate and reward students for success in the classroom. This is where the beauty of the Dragons MVP Program kicks in. The use and distribution of the awards we're offering are entirely up to each teacher. Each teacher is the sole judge and jury in how to use the Dayton Dragons MVP 'tool' in their classroom.
Fourth and fifth grade teachers in the five county area (Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, and Warren counties) receive award kits to recognize five students in their classroom. Each of the five students selected as a Dayton Dragons MVP in their classroom will receive four lawn tickets to a special MVP night at Fifth Third Field, an MVP certificate, tickets to an MVP field day at the ballpark, and a uniquely designed MVP hat. In addition to these items, they also have the opportunity to have their success story highlighted, throw out a first pitch, have an on-air radio interview, and participate in an Entertainment skit during a Dragons game.
