SA announces sixth Homecoming Poster Contest


May 28, 2013

The MSU Student Association is sponsoring the sixth annual poster contest for the university’s Homecoming festivities. Homecoming is scheduled for October 12 and will carry the theme “Live Maroon and White Forever!” 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 begins June 1 and runs through August 19. Winners will be selected from all submitted artwork that can meet the poster requirements found by clicking here. 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 August 23. The winner will receive a $500 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. Each year, the winning entry is selected to hang on campus in the Student Affairs Gallery.
