Help Penn State Win the College Colors Day Spirit Cup Again

Penn Staters will have another chance to demonstrate their school spirit this month. The third annual College Colors Day Spirit Cup is officially underway, and fans have a chance to help dear ol’ white and blue until August 28.

A point based competition, fans can score for Penn State in two ways. Posts to Instagram and Twitter of college-themed photos with the #collegecolors and #psu hashtags will earn a certain amount of points each. Some examples:

Participants can also contribute an additional 50 points by downloading the College Colors mobile app, which provides users the opportunity to customize school-related pictures. The winning team, which will have had accrued the most points by the 28th, receives a $10,000 donation to the university’s scholarship fund. The winner will be named on the 29th, the official College Colors Day, an annual celebration of the beginning of both the academic and athletic calendar.

With a massive alumni base and incredibly active student body, Penn State is no stranger to success in this contest. Penn State won the inaugural 2012 College Colors Spirit Day Cup, and came in second last year behind the Iowa Hawkeyes. And as of right now, Penn State is in the lead. Let’s make sure we don’t lose it!
