A search for the "Coolest Room" on campus
RELEASED: March 16, 2006
DANVILLE, KYDue to overwhelming past success, the search for the "Coolest Room" is back for its third season.
Last year dozens of Centre students straightened their bookshelves, stuffed dirty laundry under the bed and showed off their creativity in the contest to find the coolest room on campus. After tallying more than 500 votes last year, two students walked away with $100 and campus bragging rights. Several others won gift certificates.
Starting March 16, Centre students have an opportunity to show off their superior pads again. The Centre Communications Office is sponsoring "Coolest Room III."
This is the charge of Communications to Centre students: "Tell us why your room is the coolest on campus, and we'll come check it out."
The contest committee will select the top five rooms on the basis of color, creativity, decorations, theme and overall look.
Pictures of the top rooms will then be posted on Centre's Web site for the campus and prospective students to view and vote for pick their favorite.A $100 Target gift card will be given to the occupants of the winning room. The four runners-up will receive gift certificates. To enter a room in this contest, click here to fill out the online form. Deadline for submissions is April 6.
