4th Annual Homecoming Poster Contest now underway

May 18, 2011

The MSU Student Association announces the fourth annual Homecoming Poster Contest. Homecoming is scheduled for Nov. 5, and will carry the theme, With Praise Our Voices Ring. This poster competition is designed for MSU students to showcase their talent and make this piece of art memorable and collectible to students, employees, alumni and friends.

The poster contest runs through August 8. Winners will be selected from all submitted artwork that meets the poster requirements. Mississippi State reserves the right to reproduce and distribute the winning poster as part of homecoming activities on such items as invitations, banners and t-shirts.

All entries will be reviewed by a committee, and the winner will be notified by Aug. 23. The winner will receive a $400 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. In addition, the winning entry will be recognized and the original art will be unveiled to the MSU community. Other recognition will follow through a press release distributed by the Office of University Relations.

To be considered collectible artwork, only a limited number of copies will be printed, signed, numbered and sold through the MSU Student Association. Each year, the winning entry is displayed on campus in the Student Affairs Gallery.
