The contest is open to all UNCG student organizations, university departments or groups of students or staff on campus who wish to participate – and celebrates the start of the basketball season as well.

Groups will create banners, which incorporate the spirit of UNCG, as well as the basketball season themes #believeintheG and #DR1V3N. Prizes will be awarded to the top three groups.

The banners can be created out of any material but cannot exceed the size of a twin-sized flat bed sheet (66″x96″). The banners will be judged during the 2013 Homecoming parade on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 4:30 p.m. Groups will walk their banners in the parade for judging and receive bonus points for having their group walk alongside their banner in the parade.

The top banner design will receive a $200 gift card. Second place prize is a $100 gift card and third place is a $50 gift card. All banners created will be displayed in the Greensboro Coliseum for the home opener.

If you intend to participate, send an email with your organization, department or group team name along with contact information anytime before noon Oct. 26 to bluegold@uncg.edu.
