Show us how you celebrate summer

Summer is the best time to be in Corvallis – and we want to see how YOU celebrate summer on campus.

OSU Summer Session is kicking off this year’s #myOSUsummer photo contest beginning on June 20, and it’ll last five weeks.

Everyone is invited to participate in the photo contest highlighting their summer experience at Oregon State. All you have to do is snap a photo of yourself, the scenery or anything, really, that shows what summer at OSU is all about. Then share it with us for your chance to win.

The catch? There is none, but there are prizes!

Each week, OSU Summer Session staff will collect the submissions and vote on the “Best of the Week” photo.

The five weekly winners will each receive a $50 Visa gift card and will be entered into the grand prize contest for a $250 Visa gift card.

The talented photographer whose photo receives the most “likes” and “favorites” on their photo on social media earns the title of “Ultimate OSU Summer photo winner” – and the $250 gift card.

“The photo contest keeps us engaged with our students and helps students interact with each other,” says OSU Summer Session Director Claire Cross. “We get to see some of the fun and crazy goings on around us and, through our students’ lenses, the beauty of our campus and our valley.”

How it works:

  • Take a photo on campus
  • Tag it #myOSUsummer on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook
  • Wait and see if you win one of five weekly $50 Visa gift cards and a $250 Visa gift card grand prize
