Crestview and Lincolnview Local Schools are friendly rivals in Van Wert County. Playing off that rivalry was the spark for “Rivals United”. The original idea was to make the students aware of what the United Way does and how donated money is used to support area nonprofit agencies. Rivals United has turned into a week-long fundraiser, including unique spirit-themes and events chosen by the students. Local businesses play a huge part in this fundraiser by sponsoring events or offering a percentage of sales from school-themed items, such as drinks, cups and treats! The fundraiser is concluded during the Crestview and Lincolnview Boys Varsity basketball game.
