Sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations, Alumni Board and the Institute for Creativity. Learn all about it here.
What is it?
It’s an opportunity to share your creative ideas! This is a spin-off of the College’s Creativity Award for students and employees. Alumni are invited to submit ideas to help improve Adrian College—in large or small ways—to bring a sense of pride, add value, function, enthusiasm, spontaneity, curb appeal and so much more to the College community.
The ideas will be evaluated by a committee and the top ideas will be presented online for an alumni “vote” after Homecoming each fall.
Is there a prize?
The entrant with the winning submission will receive a $500 gift card, Bulldog notoriety and the implementation of the idea, where possible.
How do we participate?
Submissions may be made anytime online in 150 words or less. OR, you can send an email to Marsha Fielder at email@example.com. If you have questions, you can email Marsha or call (800) 264-9063.
Don’t keep your creative ideas bottled up! Let them flow…
