Win a Visa gift card!!
What most students and their families don’t realize about Washington & Jefferson College is that tuition only covers about 68 percent of the cost of a W&J education. Where does the rest of the money come from? Alumni, parents and friends!
Each year, gifts to W&J through the W&J Fund support the daily operations of the College including special programs, guest lectures, athletic equipment, travel costs, utilities, and repairs. Without these gifts, tuition would need to increase, on average, $9,000 per year. That is a huge annual investment in our students!
February 19, 2013, is Tuition Freedom Day and marks 68 percent of the way through the school year. The rest of the school year is paid for by the W&J community of donors. To celebrate, educate and acknowledge the generosity of others, we are hosting our annual student video contest.
Who? Current students may submit a video individually or in groups. Videos will be judged by a panel consisting of students, faculty and staff.
What? Submit a video* or slideshow lasting no less than 30 seconds and no more than two minutes. Must include either in print or spoken:
• “Thank you alumni, parents and friends for your generous gifts to W&J”
• “ Tuition Freedom Day – February 19, 2013”
• Must include at least four current students in the video**
• Bonus points will be awarded if alumni or parent donors appear in the video**.
• Show us your creativity! Videos can be shot while abroad, on campus or in the Washington community.
When? Video submissions must be sent to Megan Skubovius at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2013. Include the name and contact information of the video producer. Winners will be notified and awarded on Tuition Freedom Day.
Where? The winning video will be sent to alumni, parents and friends, utilized on the W&J Fund webpage, and distributed to the campus community
Why? The winner will receive credit on communications about the video, as well as a $150 Visa® Gift Card (divided equally among group submissions)!
*Videos submitted for this contest are the property of W&J and
