Homecoming 2017 - Spirit Board Competition

We are LU: Homecoming 2017
Spirit Board Competition

The Homecoming Spirit Board competition is a great way to get involved in LU’s Homecoming festivities. This contest allows your organization to be creative by incorporating the year's Homecoming theme into your Spirit Board design. The Student Organization Spirit Boards will be displayed throughout Homecoming Week at the Dining Hall Lawn.

Materials and Measurements:
Each organization will need to purchase a board no larger than 4’ x 8’ x 1” to decorate in whatever way they choose.  We suggest using a standard piece of plywood.  It is your responsibility to provide all materials necessary for your entry.


Judging and Awards:
Spirit Board judging will be based on the incorporation of the Homecoming 2017 theme, LU spirit, artistic design, creativity/originality, and the incorporation of the participating Residence Hall/Greek/Student Organization. All judges' decisions are final.

Display Boards will be judged at 5:30 p.m. October 30th. Organization Display Boards will be showcased throughout campus throughout the week of Homecoming. Organizations wishing to keep their boards must pick up their boards by 5 p.m. Friday November 3rd.

The Top 2 winning Spirit Boards will be announced during the Pep Rally on November 3, 2017.

Greek/Student Organization name and theme should be incorporated in the Spirit Board design. Keep in mind that Spirit Boards represent the organization as well as Lamar University. NO derogatory language or pictures will be accepted. NO Spirit Boards should be decorated in a way that promotes alcohol or drug use, trademark logos, or any other offensive or illegal representation. No outside sponsors are allowed for this event. Spirit Boards not following these standards of good taste will be disqualified.
