BURS:  Through the Eyes of Others

Instagram Photo Contests

#RoadToBURS

Beginning now until midnight on April 14th, students planning on presenting at BURS (April 14-15) are invited to participate in a social media contest by posting photos of their BURS preparation on Instagram using the hashtag #RoadToBURS.  Entries will be judged on how well the photo reflects the work that's involved in preparing for BURS.  Winners (most likely multiple winners) will be announced at the end of the BURS keynote, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in Frist Lecture Hall and then notified via Instagram.  Winners will receive a prize, which may include 25 Bruin Bucks, bookstore merchandise, or a $25 Chago's gift card.

#BURS2014

Then, everyone is invited to participate in another Instagram Photo Contest that captures BURS from the eyes of attendees.  Share your perspective on BURS during any of the departmental sessions or keynote April 14-15 using the hashtag #BURS2014.  Photos will be judged on how well they depict BURS from the eyes of participants.  Winning photos will be selected and prizes will be awarded after the event.  Prizes may include 25 Bruin Bucks, bookstore merchandise, or a $25 Chago's gift card.
