ENMU’s MySpace sponsoring video contest

Eastern New Mexico University’s MySpace page is sponsoring a video contest with the theme of “Cool School ENMU.”

The video should be between 30-60 seconds with no restriction on format. It shouldn’t be risque.

The contest is open to all of ENMU’s MySpace friends – high school students, college students, faculty and staff, the general public, etc.

The entry deadline is April 15. Upload the video to YouTube and submit as a “Comment” to ENMU’s MySpace page at www.myspace.com/easternnewmexico.

If sufficient quality entries are received, the first-place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to ENMU Bookstore, second place will receive a $50 gift certificate and third will receive a $25 certificate. Winners will be featured in ENMU’s Monday Memo online newsletter.

For more information, contact Wendel Sloan at wendel.sloan@enmu.edu.
