Unleash Your Inner Husky Contest

What does Unleash Your Inner Husky mean to you?

“Unleash Your Inner Husky means to not be afraid of dreaming big because there will always be support of those around you when following your passions and striving to be the best you can be.”
— Megan Van Doren

Huskies are leaders. They are motivators with a determination and driving spirit that doesn’t let anything get in their way when they are unleashed. Create a video postcard about how Bloomsburg University has made a difference in your life. How has your educational experience at BU transformed or changed you?

Your story could win one of two scholarships — $3,500 for first place or $1,500 for second place.

Five finalist videos will be selected and posted online. Members of the campus community will vote electronically for their favorite story. Winners will be notified by email and winning entries will be posted on the Bloomsburg University website, Facebook and YouTube Channel.

The deadline for contest entries is Friday, November 1, at noon. And, just for entering, you’ll receive an “Unleash Your Inner Husky” T-shirt. Questions may be directed to Irene Johnson at 389-4662 or ijohnson@bloomu.edu.
