4th Annual Booster Bash

Register Online Now

The Booster Bash is our biggest fundraiser of the year, with last year's event raising almost $40,000 for AHS and ACHS athletics. Please join us for an entertaining evening with good company, dinner, dessert, live and silent auctions.  Plan to attend the event by purchasing an individual ticket or a table. You will then have the opportunity to participate in our silent and live auction, where you will be able to bid on one of a kind items.

MOBILE BIDDING - We are thrilled to announce the addition of Mobile Bidding to this year's Annual Auction! Mobile Bidding will be used for all the Super Silent and some of the Silent Auction items. More information soon!


Individual and business sponsorships and donations are critical to a successful Booster Bash. We are looking for sponsorship money, airline miles, silent and live auction items. 

If you can help or have questions please contact:

A scholar athlete is a student athlete who participates in an organized competitive sport sponsored by the educational institution in which he or she is enrolled. And, like school districts all over the metro, Ankeny is brimming with hundreds of talented girls and boys scholar athletes. Being recognized as an outstanding scholar athlete, however, is something quite different. This winning combination, which requires that a student exhibit excellence in both academics and athletics, is a goal many seek to balance and attain, but only a select few actually achieve.

The Ankeny Booster Club, in cooperation with former Athletic Director Gary Telford, believe that a student athlete's accomplishments, both in the classroom and their chosen sport, deserve special recognition. The Telford Scholarship was established several years ago to recognize those hard-working student athletes.

Any Ankeny School District senior who has participated (as athlete or manager) in at least two (2) sports each year for grades 10, 11, 12, while simultaneously maintaining a minimum requirement 3.0 cumulative GPA is eligible to apply.

Four $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded. Scholarships will be equally divided and awarded to one male and one female recipient from Ankeny High School and Ankeny Centennial High School, who plan to attend a post-high school educational program.

Any student enrolling in a trade school, community college, 2-year or 4-year college is eligible to apply. Telford Scholarship money will be awarded to selected winners following the successful completion of their first semester or quarter of their chosen educational endeavor.

Interested and qualified seniors are encouraged to apply. Application forms are located in your school's Activities Office, or can be obtained in the Ankeny High School or Ankeny Centennial High School counselor's office. Applications are also available to download below. Complete the scholarship application form and return it to your respective Activities Office no later than Friday, April 7, 2017. 

A scholarship selection committee will review each submitted application and select two winners from each school. Recipients will be announced in a special presentation during Senior Awards Night.

Don't wait, apply today!
