Team Competitions and Events

Window Decorating Contest

UNLV’s Window Decorating Contest is a Homecoming tradition that gives students, faculty and staff the chance to show off their artistic skills and represent their Rebel Pride to earn Homecoming points. Participating groups will be assigned a window to decorate on the first floor of the student union.

Guardians of the Gray

Do you have what it takes to be a Guardian of our Scarlet and Gray Spirit? Compete in the team and individual challenges to see who the true Guardian is!

Recess Rally

Rebels give back! Take part in a school supplies drive for a local elementary school, have a blast with the students, and witness UNLV Homegoming give a donation based on the money raised over the week!

NPHC Yard Show

NPHC first participated in Homecoming in 2010, being recognized as the outstanding new participant at the 2010 Rebel Variety Show for their portrayal of The Wiz. We are excited to have NPHC, the governing council for the traditionally African-American Fraternities and Sororities.

Rebel Variety Show

The Rebel Variety Show gives individual students and those participating in the team competition the opportunity to audition and showcase their talents to win prizes. Teams registered in the homecoming competition compete for the winner of the Rebel Variety Show. Prizes are given for best Greek organization performance, best student organization performance, most spirited performance, best individual performance, and most creative performance.


Comic-Carnival is a fun way for all students to celebrate homecoming and their Rebel Pride. Come out to the academic mall show off your inner superhero while playing fun games, rides, activities, all while enjoying free food. Also, help our competing teams raise money for a local elementary school!
