Fall 2013 Room Decorating Contest Details
Participating is easy! Register by logging onto Housing on Demand and clicking on the Room Decoration Contest Application. If your room is chosen, you and your roommates will receive a $1,000 gift certificate for Diamond Dollars to split between those participating in the contest. As you know, Diamond Dollars can be used at several locations around campus including local businesses.
The DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS FRIDAY, August 30, 2013.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO DO AFTER REGISTERING:
- You and your roommates should discuss how you want to decorate your room! Think about themes and incorporating Philadelphia, Temple, Athletics, Residential Life, and something that represents you.
- Be ready to take great pictures of your room that we will post on our Facebook FanPage. There will be a dedicated section of "approved room folders" that visitors to our FanPage will be encouraged to LIKE that will affect your status in the contest. The best part is we want you to recruit fellow students, friends, and family members to LIKE your photos on our Facebook FanPage. Students will submit no more than five (5) pictures to email@example.com.
- Finally, you and your roommates (if selected as one of the finalists) must be available on Wednesday, September 11, Thursday, September 12, and/or Friday, September 13, 2013 for a photography shoot to assist us in determining the best room.
Please call (215) 204-7184, pressing option #5 for more information.
JUDGING CRITERIA FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
When shooting your photographs to submit and in preparation for the official photography shoot in mid-September, students will be encouraged to invite roommates, friends, and residents nearby to capture the excitement of living in the residence halls. Strong consideration will also be given for the quality of decorations and how well rooms reflect the Temple campus, including but not limited to the Temple-Made campaign, Temple spirit, support of Temple Athletics, and Student Affairs.
