Showcase Your Husky Pride!

 

What does Husky Pride mean to you? Can you represent this in a drawing? Painting? Photo? Poem? How about designing it on your computer? If so, then show us! Submit your artwork to the Husky Art Contest and have the chance to display it in the University Y Student Center.

Submissions that demonstrate creativity, originality and style will be selected to be displayed on campus. Additionally, from those selected, “Campus Favorites” will be voted on by the student body and the top choices will receive a cash prize.

VOTING & SELECTION

A committee comprised of campus community members will review and select the art to be displayed on campus. We will announce those selected to be displayed following the committee review and prior to the "Campus Favorites" voting. From those selected to be displayed, the student body at-large will have the opportunity to vote for their "Campus Favorite." It is our tentative goal to have this entire process completed and final winners announced by May 15, 2019.

SHOWCASE & CAMPUS FAVORITES PRIZES

The top two "Campus Favorites," as based on the number of student votes received, will receive cash prizes in the amount of $100.00 (first place) and $50.00 (runner-up).
