7th Annual Best Dressed Room Contest
This year marks the seventh year that the Office of Housing and Residence Life will sponsor the Best Dressed Room Contest, a competitive tradition at UNCG. All students living on campus can participate in this room-decorating event.
Grand prizes include $450-$475 in merchandise that you help to select. See more below...
Rooms will be judged on style, creativity, detail, best use of space and overall impact and we will have a special award for the room with the most Spartan Spirit. First place winners will be selected from each residence hall. These first prize winners will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of two grand prizes, one for the best dressed apartment or suite and another for the best dressed traditional-style room.
All you have to do is deck out your room, grab your camera, phone, or tablet and take pictures of your room. Choose your favorite three shots, and upload them (along with the entry form) for the first round of judging.(Please note: The quality of the photos will not be judged. Judges will only be looking at how your room is decorated, for purposes of selecting hall winners.)
How To Enter
- To enter, students must complete an entry form and upload room photos no later than noon on September 17. Each photo needs to be under 2 MB in size, or the application will not go through. If you do not have access to a camera and need to have photos taken, you should contact the RA on duty in your residence hall. Applications must be approved by all parties sharing the room and by clicking "accept" on the application, all parties approve of the stipulations of the contest.
- Participants have the option to give input on the prizes awarded on the entry form.
- First prize winners from each residence hall will be determined by a set of judges from Housing and Residence Life and will be automatically entered into the final round of judging.
- On September 26, roommates from winning rooms will receive an email that they have won at the hall level. They will be notified when the judges will come to see their rooms in person for final judging. The week of September 29, judges will visit each first place room in person, dates and times TBD. They will select two grand prize winning rooms this year, one from the apartments and suites and the other from traditional-style housing.
