M&T Bank Announces Baltimore Ravens Draft Day Challenge Contest

BALTIMORE, Md.—Coming off another successful season, the Baltimore Ravens and their fans are now focused on the all-important question—what position will the Ravens select first in the 2010 draft on April 22.

In the M&T Bank Draft Day Challenge, fans who correctly guess the position of the player the Ravens select first will be entered into a drawing for five special prize packages that each include the following:

  • A meeting with the Ravens first draft pick
  • An autographed jersey signed by the Ravens first draft pick
  • A behind the scenes tour of the Ravens training facility

From April 1-22, fans can visit www.baltimoreravens.com/draftdaychallenge to make their prediction. The contest is open to legal residents, 13 and older, of the following states: Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington, D.C.

In its fourth year, the M&T Bank Draft Day Challenge is another exciting component to the partnership between M&T Bank and the Baltimore Ravens, which began in 2003 with the naming of M&T Bank Stadium.

"Over the last seven years, our partnership with the Ravens has developed into a multi-faceted, year-round commitment to the community," said Atwood "Woody" Collins III, president of M&T Bank's Mid-Atlantic Division. "The Draft Day Challenge is another way we are able to reach out to Ravens fans of this region. Last year proved to be another exciting and successful season with an exciting playoff run. This year, draft day marks the beginning of the anticipation for the 2010 season, in which the Ravens will build on their success."

M&T Bank is the official bank of the Baltimore Ravens. In addition to naming the stadium, the partnership has many community components, including the Honor Rows program, which gives more than 800 game tickets per season to outstanding volunteers; the All Community Team, which engages the corporate community to raise funds for non-profit organizations and player foundations; and Baltimore's Marching Ravens, the largest marching band in the NFL.
