Family Weekend photo contest on Instagram

Students who tag Instagram photos with their family this weekend using #ElonFamily can win fun prizes from the Office of Parent Programs.


Hey, students! Are your relatives coming to campus for Family Weekend 2012?

Elon University staff members in the Office of Parent Programs and the Office of University Communications will be scouring Instagram over the weekend for the most engaging, heartwarming images of students with their parents, grandparents or other relatives visiting the area!

If you take a fun shot on Instagram with Mom or Dad, or maybe a grandparent or two, be sure to tag it with #ElonFamily, and we’ll select the 10 best to publish on the university’s Facebook page. Photos must be taken over the weekend, and they must include a current student with at least one family member in the same shot (that can also include brothers and sisters!)

NOTE: Please remember that certain privacy settings may prohibit staff from being able to find your photos.

The three students whose family photos receive the most “likes” on Facebook through October 5 will an Elon University T-shirt, an Elon gym bag and an Elon: Under the Oaks coffee table photo book.

Be sure to follow Elon University on a Facebook (facebook.com/elonuniversity), Twitter (@elonuniversity) and Instagram (elonuniversity) to keep up-to-date on campus happenings.
