Event Details

It’s a really quacky concept. To win the Grand Prize of $10,000 cash, all you have to do is adopt a duck. Duck Adoptions range in price from $5-$250. You can support a team by adopting a duck on their page or you can also go online and get your own!

Due to continued concerns about COVID-19, this year’s event will be virtual. Each duck you adopt will participate in the virtual duck race. We will have some special guests announcing the winners once they reach the finish line. Don’t forget to tune in to be a part of Advocates’ 19th Duck Derby!

Where is the Duck Derby?

It’s virtual! This year’s Duck Derby will be wherever you want it to be. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stream our live event or come to the Downtown Duck Dash and find out who the lucky winner is!

Date: May 15th, 2021
Time: 7:30 pm

Advocates for Children’s Quacky Cash competition is back, and we are excited to award 3 lucky seniors $1,000-$5,000 to go towards future expenses.

Here’s how you participate:

When you sign up, you will be provided a unique URL, a fundraising toolkit, and other opportunities to help you sell ducks!


Q. Do I have to go to school in Bartow County?
A. Yes. For the time being this contest is for Bartow County residents only.

Q. Do I have to spend the prize money on college?
A. No. The prize money is yours to do what you wish with. While we would like for you to use the money to reinvest in your future (college, down payment on a car, apartment deposit, savings, etc.), there are no limitations on the prize money.

Q. I signed up. When do I get my unique URL?
A. You need to send a personal bio and picture to Samantha at to generate your URL. After that, expect a 24 hour turn around time before receiving your URL.

Q. What if I send someone to the duck sales website and they don’t purchase on my page?
A. Any ducks adopted from the main page of the website are attributed to Advocates for Children and not you. You must ensure that people purchase ducks from your page in order to get credit.
