"Bow Down to Washington" is the official fight song of the University of Washington. It was written by Lester J. Wilson in 1915 while partaking in a competition requesting a new song for the university. The competition was sponsored by the campus newspaper, The Daily, and had a grand prize of US$25 (the equivalent of $581 in 2015). "Bow Down to Washington" was first used as a fight song at the Washington-California football game on November 6, 1915 in a 72-0 away victory.[1][2] It is typically played and sung at all University of Washington sporting events at which the University of Washington Husky Marching Band is present, including all football, basketball, and volleyball games.
