TeamAutismNC is a campaign to promote autism awareness in the state of North Carolina during the college football season.

It also aims to let the people of North Carolina know of available resources and services offered by the Autism Society of North Carolina. 

The Autism Society of North Carolina, Hardison & Cochran Attorneys at Law and UNC Athletics partnered in 2014 to create TeamAutismNC.

Please visit our Join Page and submit your name, e-mail and phone number to become a member of TeamAutimsNC.

After joining TeamAutismNC, you will receive e-mails each Wednesday of the college football season that include educational info, current events and stats associated with autism in North Carolina. These e-mails begin in August and run through the first week of December.

Team members who are 18+ years of age and a resident North Carolina will be eligible to win the Wood Pellet Grill Give-A-Way at the end of the college football season. To be eligble to win, you must be subscribed to the weekly e-mail list at the end of the season. See Give-A-Way Rules for more information.

E-mails are not sent out during the football off-season, but will continue the next year once the college football season begins. Once you join the team, you’re on it even going into the next year, so if you signed up in 2017 and are currently on the e-mail list, there is no need to sign up this year. You should already be receiving e-mails. If you have signed up and are not receiving e-mails, please e-mail us at and we’ll fix the problem.

Each season, one University of North Carolina Football home game is designated as the Autism Awareness Game. During the game the Autism Society of North Carolina will be featured on in game graphics and also on pregame radio.

Prior to kickoff, the Autism Society of North Carolina will be setup in Tar Heel Town. Staff members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about autism or the services they provide in the state.

The 2020 Autism Awareness Game has been canceled. Please check back in the summer of 2021 for more information on the 2021 Autism Awareness Football Game.

All you have to do is join the team and stay subscribed to our weekly newsletter until the winning name is picked on December 7th, 2019. A list of everyone subscribed to the newsletter will be produced on that day and the winner will be picked randomly from the list. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter before that date, you will not be eligible to win the Wood Pellet Grill. Additionally, the winner must be at least 18 years of age and also a resident of North Carolina. To see all the rules and information about the Wood Pellet Give-A-Way please visit the Give-A-Way Rules page.
