Honors College (Virtual) Halloween Costume Contest!

Hey Honors Folks,

Too old, perhaps, to Trick or Treat? But you are NEVER too old for a Halloween Costume Contest! Because we are not quite ready for an in-person event, however, we are going to do this virtually!

Here is what you need to know/do to join in on the fun:
  • By Friday, October 22nd, at 5:00pm, send us two separate images: 1) a .jpeg, screenshot, etc., of the character or person you are dressing as, 2) a photo of yourself dressed as that character or person. See samples here!
  • Send to honorscollege@umbc.edu with the email title: Costume Contest: Last Name
  • We will compile a "ballot" over the weekend, and open voting on Monday, October 25th. Yes, there will be PRIZES for the Best Costume in a number of different categories.
Please keep in mind that this is a family show, so to speak; also, if you have an idea but are concerned it might be an example of cultural appropriation (vs. one of cultural appreciation), ask one of us in the Honors College. We'd be happy to talk it through with you!

OK, ready, set...get those costumes going!!
