The content we’re looking for: 

We’re in the season where international students are moving to the U.S. to start their new lives. Lots of them have limited experience with college life in the U.S., and your secret campus getaways will help them settle in.

Send us a photo, GIF, video, 80-word description, or any other creative content to make your campus getaway even more appealing to students who are new in the U.S. We can’t wait to (virtually) explore your campus!

How are the winners being evaluated?

  • 40% “Like” counts on Facebook. 
  • 30% Judges at MPOWER. 
  • 20% Content creativity: Images/GIFs are good, high-quality short clips are even better! The more creative content, the better. 
  • 10% With that being said, you need to specify which campus are you sharing about. 

After you submit your secret campus getaway on the MPOWER website, we’ll post each entry on our Facebook event page starting August 26. That’s where you come into play!

Remember, getting Facebook likes is a big part of your final score. From August 26 through September 2 at 8:00 a.m. EST, share your entry with all your friends and groups on Facebook so you can get as many likes as possible. After all, it’s a competition! 

We’ll announce the winner on September 5 and send you the $$ on September 9.  Moreover, on September 10 we’ll send the list of campus getaways to everyone who participated so you’ll have ideas about where to hang out around your campus as soon as your new semester starts!
