The winner of the Lights Camera
Freeride contest will be announced on February 13th in the Johnson
Building multipurpose room.
The winner’s reveal and presentation of
the check will take place between 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. during the opening session
of HSU Winter Preview. Winter Preview engages prospective students in a number
of activities including meeting current students and admission staff, visiting
with faculty, and touring the campus.
Newly accepted HSU students for fall
2016 had the opportunity to compete to win a free ride for their first academic
year at Hardin-Simmons by entering the #LightsCameraFreeRide video contest.
Twenty-six students competed in the contest by creating and
uploading an original 30 to 60 second video about “#going2hsu.” Students were
asked to dream about life on campus, who they want to be, and how HSU will
help them get there.
Contest winners were based on a combination of viewer votes (35%) and
judges scores from a panel made up of five anonymous Hardin-Simmons Employees
The first place winner will receive tuition, room and meals for the 2016-2017
academic year valued at an estimated $34,118. Second place will receive an
on-campus room for the 2016-2017 academic year valued at an estimated $3,900.
The top 25 participants who submit a valid entry will receive a $1,000 one-time
