|SOUTHEASTERN SPONSORS HOMECOMING CONTESTS
HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University
will celebrate Homecoming Week October 4-9 with a host of activities for
both the campus and community, including a bonfire, alumni awards evening,
reunions, parade and the 6 p.m. Oct. 9 Southeastern-Northern Colorado football
game in Strawberry Stadium.
Alumni Director Kathy Pittman said plans for
the gala celebration also include a shoe box float decorating contest for
area children, ages 6-13.
First, second and third place prizes will
be given in three categories -- ages 6-7, 8-9 and 10-13.
Contest rules require that participants decorate a standard size shoe
box using the 2004 homecoming theme, “Roomie Goes Around the World.”
Children should include the following information
on the bottom of their float: full name, address, city, state, zip, phone
number, age, grade and school. Entries should be brought by 4:30 p.m. Oct.
4 to the Southeastern Alumni Center, 500 University Ave., where they will
be on display during Homecoming Week.
Also adding to Southeastern Homecoming spirit
are a t-shirt design contest for Southeastern students, a tailgating recipe
contest for Southeastern staff, a “Lions Lessons” contest for faculty,
and decorating contests for campus doors and Hammond businesses.
