#BringHomeBrockU this Reading Week!

You’re excited for Reading Week, and we want you to #BringHomeBrockU!

Snap a selfie or take a video showing off your Brock gear during Reading Week. A local monument, your old high school, your vacation spot, or just at home with your family! Then post it on Twitter or Instragram with the hashtag #BringHomeBrockU — and that’s it!

To make sure we see your entry, you’ll want to make sure your Twitter or Instagram account is public, and that you’re following @BrockUniversity.

Once you’re back at Brock, we’ll pick three winners — with the grand prize winner receiving a $500 Brock Campus Store gift card.

So make sure you get in your photos and videos before 11:59 p.m. on February 21, 2016, and #BringHomeBrockU this Reading Week!


Official contest rules

Brock University’s Recruitment & Liaison Services (the “contest sponsor”) is running a contest from 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, February 12 until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sunday, February 21, 2016.

Current Brock University students will have the chance to win one grand prize, a $500 Brock University Campus Store gift card, or one of two secondary prizes, a Brock prize pack.

How to enter:

Submit a photo or video showing off your Brock gear (clothing or accessories) in your hometown during the contest period. Submissions can be entered by using the #BringHomeBrockU hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.

By submitting the photo or video, participants give Brock University permission to use, publish or reproduce original or modified versions of them, along with the participant’s name and description.

All appropriate, constructive submissions have a chance to win one of the prizes. Offensive or inappropriate content is subject to being deemed ineligible. Entries submitted must be the participant’s own creations and may not contain copyrighted works the participant does not have permission to use.

Each entrant may win only one prize, regardless of multiple entries or multiple accounts.

The contest sponsor will not be responsible for entries that are lost, misdirected or delayed, or any technical difficulties an entrant may experience. Entries from protected Twitter and Instagram accounts may not be visible to Brock University. Entries that do not conform to or satisfy any condition of the rules may be disqualified. The contest sponsor’s rulings are final and without appeal in all matters related to the eligibility of submissions and the awarding of the prizes.

The contest sponsor accepts no responsibility for loss, damage or claims caused by or resulting from the contest.

Two judges provided by Brock’s Recruitment & Liaison Services will select the three best submissions, also taking into consideration academic standing. The entrant with the best submission will win a $500 Brock University Campus Store gift card. Second and third place entrants will each win a Brock prize pack, each valued at $50.

The winners will be selected on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 and notified via either Twitter or Instagram within seven days.

If a selected entrant does not respond within seven days of being notified, he/she will be disqualified and another entrant will be selected to receive a prize. Brock University will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact a selected entrant.

No purchase necessary. The odds of winning depend on the number of submissions.

Brock University reserves the right to terminate or amend this contest at any time and in any way, without prior notice. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Twitter or Instagram. By entering the contest, participants fully release Twitter and Instagram from any liability.
