||College's No. 13 ranking inspires Lucky 13 Contest
RELEASED: October 30, 2008
So while this ranking is in a number of ways subjective (as are all college rankings), after hearing the latest campus riddle (“What’s 13?” See answer below*), the Communications Office decided to have some fun with the Forbes affair, via The Lucky 13 Contest.
The contest is open to current students, prospective students, faculty and staff; alumni, parents; and other friends of the College. To enter, send your take on the Forbes No.13 ranking as a riddle, a one-liner, a tight paragraph, a poem, a picture—beyond the limits of local, state and federal law, there are no restrictions. Use your imagination! E-mail entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or send via campus mail or snail mail.
Thirteen fabulous** prizes will be awarded to each winner. First prize will win an iPod Nano plus 12 other prizes. Second place wins an iPod Shuffle plus 12 other prizes. The third-place winner will take home a surprise gift plus 12 other prizes.
Remember, be creative, clever, catchy, and canorous (http://www.merriam-webster.com/). The winning entries—and others as well—will be featured in a Web story and in other venues. Make 13 your lucky number—send in your entry right away!
