Good Fit contest showcases creative photos
February 10, 2012
Online voting continues until Feb. 15 for the People's Choice Award in Augustana College's Good Fit T-shirt Photo Contest, where potential first-year students are eligible to win one of five $1,000 scholarships to Augustana.
For their photos, students must wear the Augustana T-shirt they received when visiting campus.
Readers are invited to see Goodfit for creative photos and clever captions, and to cast a vote for their favorite.
In addition to the People's Choice Award, other categories in the photo contest include action shot, famous location, at another college and with an alumnus.
The Good Fit T-Shirt competition is a fun way Augustana can get to know the potential members of its incoming class while spreading the word about Augustana College at the same time.
"It's a way to get Augustana's name out in cyber-world as students share their photos and ask others to vote," said Meghan Cooley, director of recruitment communications and a 1999 Augustana graduate. "In some ways, it's like a global billboard as we have photos of students wearing their Augustana T-shirts in England, Greece and Belize, even at the Blarney Stone in Ireland."
