#DiscoverNMSUEducation: NMSU College of Education launches social media contest

New Mexico State University College of Education students are invited to share their best photos of campus life and become eligible to win bookstore gift cards.

This week, the College of Education is launching its #DiscoverNMSUEducation Instagram campaign. To participate, students must tag their best campus life photos on Instagram #DiscoverNMSUEducation, #NMSU and @nmsu_education. In addition, they must follow the @nmsu_education Instagram account.

“We are very excited to engage our students in the College of Education with this great media campaign,” said Enedina Vazquez, professor and associate dean in the College of Education. “Although we may not be fully adept with new media technology, we are excited to meet students in their virtual environments. Our goal is to meet our students’ needs in every way we can.”

Images must be personal photographs, not photos found online. Images must also pertain to campus life and activities, such as conferences, gatherings and classes. Participants are allowed to post as many photos as they’d like. Prizes will be given to individual participants.

The contest ends Oct. 22 during Homecoming Week. Winners will be announced Oct. 23.

Winners will be determined by the number of “likes” by other users. The prize for the most “likes” is a $50 gift card for the Barnes & Noble at NMSU bookstore. Second- and third-place winners will receive one $20 and one $10 gift card respectively. In the event of a tie, the College of Education will choose the winner.
