Homecoming 2003 Set for October 13-18

* Decorating Contest for Homes, Businesses
It’s the return of a tradition that began on the ISNU campus in 1927 — the Homecoming Decoration Contest! Alumni — wherever they live — are invited to join faculty/staff and campus departments in showing their Redbird pride and helping to put the campus and community in the Homecoming spirit by decorating the location of their choice: residence, commercial/business, or campus department. Awards will be given based on the use of this year’s Homecoming theme, Redbird Magic, as well as originality, use of red and white, and use of Illinois State University’s name and/or images.

Entries within Bloomington-Normal will be judged in person. However, if you’re far away from campus, you can still participate by mailing or E-mailing three photographs of your decorated house/business for consideration. To participate, complete the downloadable entry form. Get your decorating team together right away, because the deadline for submissions is Friday, October 10th!
