FAYETTEVILLE -- The Sweat Hawgs are coming back to Bud Walton Arena Sunday afternoon for the annual Sweat Hawgs Salute to Excellence at women’s basketball.   The Razorbacks host Mississippi State in the final regular season home game.

The Sweat Hawg program is a collaborative community outreach effort between the University of Arkansas Athletics Department, the Fayetteville Public Schools and the Farmington Public Schools. The program’s goal is to encourage young people to prioritize their health and physical fitness within themselves and the Razorback student-athletes and athletics events provide support to do so. Throughout the year, Razorback student-athletes visit the participating schools and take part in physical activities with the students.  Each month the participating schools nominate their Sweat Hawg Monthly Honoree and they are recognized at an athletic event during that month.
 
Sweat Hawgs launched its pilot program during the 2004-05 academic year.  The program is now in its eighth year and incorporates all nine Fayetteville elementary schools, and its third, fourth and fifth graders (1,933 students in approximately 120 physical education classrooms).  Fayetteville schools include: Asbell, Butterfield Trail, Happy Hollow, Holcomb, Leverett, Owl Creek, Root, Vandergriff and Washington Elementary. Furthermore, the program includes three Farmington schools: Williams Elementary, Ledbetter Intermediate, and Folsom Elementary.

All Sweat Hawgs have been invited back to cheer on the Razorbacks as they play host to Mississippi State at 2 pm on Sunday. Throughout the game, schools will be recognized for their attendance and will be asked to display their passionate school spirit.
