Spring Break Photo Contest: Submit Your Photos Flaunting PSU Pride

With spring break quickly approaching, many of you are probably itching for your sunny and tropical getaways more than ever. Whether you plan on hitting the clubs in Miami or relaxing on the beaches in Cancun, you simply cannot wait to escape the icy grip of State College winter, and we don’t blame you.

We all know vacations wouldn’t be complete without dozens of photos. Pictures of you on the beautiful beaches, with your friends, endless selfies — the works! So when you’re snapping away this upcoming week, make sure you’re flaunting your school spirit and sporting your best Penn State garb.

Whether you’re working an outfit that’s head-to-toe blue and white in Florida, or you’re waving around a Penn State flag somewhere abroad, we want to see it! Send us your best spring break photos showing off Penn State pride. We’ll take note of the most epic pictures and post them here for all to see.

Submissions can be sent to [email protected], and the top pictures will be posted soon after break.

In your submission, please include:

– Your first and last name.
– Your current year at Penn State.
– Where you visited.
– Who you went with.
– Your absolute favorite moment of spring break.

Even if you’re just hanging around your hometown with some friends and family, don’t be afraid to submit. You don’t have to be on an exotic island or in a foreign country to show off your favorite school!
