What is Cowdrop?
Cowdrop is Kappa Sigma’s annual fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds go to the ENMU Foundation for scholarships, as well as the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign.
About Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign
Created in 2007, the Military Heroes Campaign honors and aids thousands of military veterans and their families in communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Since its inception, the campaign has donated over $1,000,000 to non-profit organizations who advocate on behalf of servicemen and women and those wounded in combat.
About ENMU Foundation
The ENMU Foundation offers a variety of scholarships designed to reward, encourage and assist you in your pursuit of academic excellence and leadership roles. Scholarships are awarded to qualified ENMU students who demonstrate academic excellence. The ENMU Foundation scholarships are established by generous alumni and benefactors and are reviewed by various committees across campus and awarded based on the established criteria.
How does it work?
The Brothers of Kappa Sigma sell tickets that have a number on them; each number corresponds to a square in a cow arena. We release a cow into the arena, and the square it does its “business” in wins $1,000, and the 8 adjacent squares win $100!
How much is a ticket?
Tickets are $5 each, with a book of 10 tickets. There are no minimum or maximum purchases, so you may buy however many you like.
When will the 2023 Cowdrop take place?
Ticket sales start on March 10, and run through April 8.
Do I have to be present to win?
While anyone is welcome to come watch the event take place, you do not have to be present to win. The winners will be posted in the Portales and Clovis Newspapers, and we will contact the winners to inform them.

ENMU’s new stadium
Starting in 2016 and completed in 2019, Cowdrop funds also went into the new ENMU Stadium. The Theta-Zeta Chapter of Kappa Sigma pledged $10,000 over 4 years to support our school’s project. We invite you to read KRQE’s report from 2016 on it here. We are proud to support our school and of fulfilling our commitment to it.
