Madison, Wis. - Hey Badger fans, 11 of Wisconsin's 23 men's and women's sports will be competing at home this weekend. In honor of this unique circumstance, the athletic department is promoting a Twitter contest with prizes awarded throughout the weekend for creative and interesting tweets from fans attending these events.

For example, fans may be asked to tweet photos from events to qualify for prizes including Badger game tickets, merchandise and more. Show your Badger pride and attend as many events as you can. Many of the events are free, and tickets are available for most others.

The TWITTER hashmark #BadgerWknd should be used for the four-day event so everyone can track tweets on Twitter. The marathon of events starts Thursday, Jan. 21 with women's basketball at the Kohl Center vs. Penn State at 7 p.m.

Friday men’s and women’s hockey is in action at the Kohl Center, and wrestling takes place at the UW Field House.
