#RedbirdNation: Illinois State University needs your help!

Illinois State is trying to win its first Shorty Award (sort of like an Oscar or Emmy award, but for social media). Illinois State’s Twitter account (@IllinoisStateU) is a Top 5 competitor in the #bncollege category, which is exclusively for campuses like ours with a Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

The school with the most nominations by February 18 has a good shot at winning the award. You can help put us over the top by tweeting out your nomination, using the sample text below:

“I nominate @IllinoisState for a Shorty Award in #bncollege because…” and then add your own reason. You can also use this easy nomination page.

Illinois State’s students and faculty have been driving up our votes all week, so now it’s your turn.
