#WeekofWelcome Photo Contest


Welcome home everyone! Whether this is your first year in college or you’re returning from a summer of externing or adventuring, we want to see your favorite back-to-school moments.

Starting September 10, share your Week of Welcome photos for a chance to be featured on our social media pages … and win a $100 gift card to the CIA bookstore! So, share your move-in day selfies, show off your new room and roommates, and let’s see those pics from your first-day of classes to the exciting events on campus!

The rules are simple:

  • Snap a photo and post on Twitter or Instagram mentioning #WeekofWelcome and #Proud2BCIA.
  • For consideration, the photo must be tagged and submitted by Sunday, September 17th at midnight.
  • Only post a photo to which you own the rights. Entries must comply with terms of service for Instagram and Twitter.
  • You must be an individual (not an organization, club, or group) to enter.
  • Your photo should depict YOUR experience of the start of the Fall 2017 semester (even if you started on August 21).
  • No nudity or profanity, please.
  • We’ll select ten finalists to be featured on the CIA’s Facebook page.
  • Of those, a winner will be selected based on the photo with the most “likes” and will receive a $100 CIA Bookstore gift card. The winner will be announced Friday, September 22 and notified with additional details.
  • The contest is open to all current CIA students in New York, Texas, California, or at any of our study away sites.
  • By entering, you grant permission for your contest submissions to be featured on CIA’s Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and/or Google+ pages, and on the CIA’s blog and website.
