The time has finally come to start thinking of what post you will send into ETEAL’s Instagram contest this year. For those of you who are unaware of what this contest is, we are here to help.
ETEAL is a way for students to showcase what they have learned outside the normal classroom setting. ETEAL encourages students to learn and grow on their experiences by taking time outside of their schedule to explore their major or field of study. This can either be studying abroad and learning a new culture, working as an intern, or hands-on experience that enhance learning.
So, how does this apply to Instagram? Well ETEAL is asking students to post themselves experiencing learning outside of the classroom. The goal is to increase awareness of ETEAL and to promote learning and exploring your major. Students must post their picture to Instagram and tag @UNCWETEAL. Students can follow the ETEAL Instagram account in order to see their picture possibly be reposted. This year ETEAL is using the hashtags #ETEALExpedition and #DiscoverYourPassion when reposting your images.
Students who participate in this contest will be eligible to win lots of amazing prizes. Prizes include: ETEAL merchandise, Starbucks gift cards, Harris Teeter gift cards, SeaHawk bucks, and more. In order to win these prizes, ETEAL has come up with categories that the photos will be judged upon. These categories include: Most Liked Photo, Most Original, Faculty Favorite, and more. These awards will be celebrated at Hawks Nest on April 28th from 12:00- 1:00 p.m. This is when winners will be announced and there will be food and fun!
Don’t miss out on this fun event and be sure to post a picture and contribute to ETEAL’a Instagram contest. Any further details can be found at: http://uncw.edu/eteal/News/2016/InstagramContest.html

I think this is a great way to get students excited about what they’re doing outside of the classroom. Hopefully they are excited without the Instagram competition but I think this will connect more people.
