Slam Dunk and 3-Point Contests to be held at the State Capitol


When it comes to freedom of speech, there may not be a better way to express yourself than a spectacular dunk or reigning consecutive 3-pointers. Sometimes, actions speak louder than words.

This summer, Fast Eddy’s BAM Jam is excited to announce that the POWERADE Slam Dunk Championship and the ACHD Commuteride 3-Point Challenge will be held on the steps of Idaho’s State Capitol Building!

As far as we can tell, this is the first time that a dunk competition or a 3-point contest have been held on the steps of Capitol Building. The closest may have been in 2001 when the NBA All-Star Weekend was held in Washington DC.

Anyone can participate in the contests. The finals will likely be held on Saturday afternoon.

Qualifying for the ACHD Commuteride 3-Point Challenge will take place through out the day on Saturday. The top qualifiers will be able to participate in the finals that afternoon.

If you are interested in participating in the POWERADE Slam Dunk Championship, you can sign up at the event, likely at the STADIA Clothing booth. Be sure to check in there for details and preliminary information.
