UNCG Social Media Promotion

Class of 2016: Enter our Commencement social video contest!

Graduates take selfie photosGraduates: In a few weeks you will turn your tassels and begin a new adventure. Before you go, we’d love to hear in your own words what you will miss about UNCG.

Share it on social media, and there’s a chance you’ll win a $50 Amazon gift card.

All you have to do is post a video response of at least 15 seconds on Twitter or Instagram by 11:59 p.m. Dec. 8, 2016. You must tag @uncg and include the #uncggrad hashtag to be eligible for the prize.

Be creative! We will choose two of our favorite videos and the graduates will win an Amazon gift card. We will announce the winners* by 5 p.m. Dec. 12 on our Twitter and Instagram channels and on this page. We’ll also include our favorite videos in a Storify published to uncg.edu on Dec. 16.

Good luck and best wishes!
