Show Us Your #BodPride!

We're stoked for one of our favorite weeks of the year - Homecoming! Go hashtag crazy on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Vine during Homecoming Week (Oct. 21 – 26) showing us your #BodPride for your chance to win a gift card to the Ichabod Shop. We'll be on the lookout for the most epic snapshots and video, and sharing them on Ichabod Interactive for people to view and vote for their favorites. We’re searching for the photo or video that proves who has the most #BodPride!

Here's how to enter:
1. Follow Washburn University through whichever social network you plan to use for your entry. On Instagram, Facebook and Vine you can find us as Washburn University. On Twitter our handle is @WashburnUniv.
2. Upload your photos or video showing your #BodPride during Homecoming Week (possibly at one of the photo stations setup during select Homecoming events full of fun Washburn themed props).
3. Tag us in your photo (@washburnuniversity on Instagram, Facebook or Vine, or @washburn.univ on Twitter) and make sure your post is shared publicly.
4. Use hashtag #BodPride in the text photo description.

That's it!

From there we’ll pull your entries into Ichabod Interactive for your peers to vote for their favorites. The three entries with the highest numbers of combined favorites, likes, shares and comments will win one of three gift cards to the Ichabod Shop.

First Place: $100
Second Place: $75
Third Place: $50
