Students, show us your favorite URSA Scholars Week moments for our photo contest!

For the second year in a row, URSA and the OVPR are sponsoring a Scholars Week photo contest open to all Baylor students!

Here’s how the contest works:

  • Take a picture of your favorite moments from this year’s URSA Scholars Week.  Check out some of last year’s entries for inspiration.
  • Share your pictures on Twitter using the hashtag #URSA14. Remember that if your account is set to private, we may not be able to see your pictures.
  • Optional (but encouraged!), follow the OVPR on Twitter and Instagram. We’ll retweet pictures and share updates from all the events throughout Scholars Week.
  • Check back here! At the end of the week, we’ll announce the contest winner.

Preparing for my research presentation tomorrow. I can't wait! #URSAScholarsWeek
