Posted: Updated:
HUNTINGTON, West Virginia -  It's time to show your support for the Thundering Herd with Green Fridays. 

Fans are encouraged to show their love for Marshall University every Friday during football season starting August 29. This is the day before the Herd's first game at Miami (Ohio), according to a news release from the university. 

Have a big group of fans? Employees of any local business, organization or school can register to win prizes by contacting Mallory Jarrell. She's the marketing and branding coordinator at Marshall University. Registration is available at www.marshall.edu/greenfridays. Organizational participants will be asked for their location and the number of participating employees. A winner will be chosen every Friday before a home football game throughout football season.

Individual fans also can show their pride and possibly win prizes this year by entering the Fan of the Week contest. To enter the contest, Herd fans are asked to submit a photo of themselves in their Marshall gear through the contest page at www.facebook.com/marshallu or use #HerdGreenFridays on Instagram, according to the news release. 

As for the organizational winners, a Fan of the Week will be chosen every Friday before a home football game throughout football season. Winners will be notified by e-mail. 

A $50 gift card to the Marshall University bookstore will be given to the winner.
