Constitution Day celebrates the ratification of the US Constitution on Sept. 17. This year, we're assembling a video of UP folks reading out the preamble.
Sept. 27 - Oct. 3 is Banned Books Week, which celebrates books that have been challenged for removal from libraries and schools across the nation and around the world. This year the SLRC will be especially emphasizing censorship and freedom of expression. Stay tuned for our "online display"!
This contest is open to all full- and part-time employees at LSC-UP. (If you're familiar with previous years, you'll know normally we require teams of at least 2. However, this year -- for obvious reasons -- we're insisting upon solo entries: 1 person per pumpkin.)
You have the first three weeks in October to decorate your pumpkin. The librarians will be hosting a pandemic-style pumpkin patch out of the EMI parking lot on Friday, Oct. 2. You must reserve a time slot to claim your pumpkin and follow the normal campus protocols (masks on, stay 6 feet apart).
Pumpkin photos are due by Wednesday, Oct. 21. Voting will run for 1 week, and the winner will be announced on Friday, Oct. 30.
This year, we've got online voting! This means you'll need to take pictures of your pumpkin to send us. The upload form can take 1 file up to 100 MB, so if you take multiple pictures (recommended), zip them up or paste them into another document. You may also upload them to an online album and submit the link to us (make sure your album is visible/shareable!).
Write the scariest story you can in 2 sentences or less!
Currently-enrolled LSC-UP students (including dual credit) are eligible to participate.
This contest runs Oct. 1. through 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
The entry form will display below starting Oct. 1 with the start of the contest. All entries must go through this online form. Each student may submit up to 3 entries.
Winner(s) will be announced on Halloween! We'll contact you to let you know you've won (or follow us on social media).
Prize: TBA once we know what we're allowed to do this year...
