This year marks the 14th 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.
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.
Rooms will be judged on style, creativity, detail, best use of space and overall impact. 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.
(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.)
|Winner Level||Prize value|
|Best room in each residence hall||$50-$75 prize|
|Random Drawing Award||$200 prize: Your room wasn’t selected as a winner for your hall, but you could still win the random drawing if you attend the reception on September 28, in Shaw Residence Hall, from 5:30-on. You must RSVP for the reception. Details will follow.|
|Overall Grand Prize winner – Apartments & Suites||$400 prize: Grand prize winners get to keep their hall prize plus an additional prize valued at $400, a total of $450-$475 in prizes.|
|Overall Grand Prize winner – Traditional Housing||$400 prize: Grand prize winners get to keep their hall prize plus an additional prize valued at $400, a total of $450-$475 in prizes.|
In all cases, participants must be present to win, or designate a friend to receive the prize for them.
*Violations of Housing and Residence Life and/or University policies will result in disqualification. Contact your Resident Advisor with any questions about what you can do to decorate your room. If you have any problems completing the form, please contact Mary Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The person listed as the Primary Contact on your entry form will receive a receipt of your entry information in iSpartan email. If you don’t see it shortly after submitting your entry, please check your spam for an email from email@example.com.
Your photos will be judged and, if you win first prize for your residence hall, you will be contacted on September 16, and you will be notified when the judges will come to see these rooms in person for final judging during the week of September 19. They will select two grand prize winning rooms, one from the apartments and suites and the other from traditional-style housing.
All participants are invited to a prize reception on September 28, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Tillman Smart room (in Shaw Residence Hall in the Quad), at which time all winners will be announced and will receive a prize. Winners MUST be present to receive prizes, or ask a friend to show up on their behalf. If your room doesn’t win, you could still receive a prize valued at $200:
