Homecoming scheduled for Sept. 29-Oct. 1; Theme, parade marshal suggestions sought

April 8, 2011

The annual contest to select a theme for Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Homecoming is now open to the public—on and off campus. Deadline for submitting entries is 4 p.m., Monday, April 25.

This year’s homecoming will be celebrated Thursday, Sept. 29, through Saturday, Oct. 1.

Suggestions must be limited to 10 words or fewer and should be something that can be illustrated through designs for floats, sheet signs and dorm decorations.

The person who submits the winning theme will receive a commemorative Homecoming t-shirt and a Homecoming button that will allow admissions into the Miss Cinderella Talent Show, Pageant and the Ranger football game.

Members of the homecoming committee are not eligible to compete for the prize.

Steve Valencia, Homecoming chairman, explained that if a winning theme suggestion does not come from the public, the committee will devise one, and there will be no award.

He said that the committee also is looking for suggestions for honorary parade marshal. Persons nominated must have a significant connection, current or past, to Northwestern whether as a student, faculty member, staff member, coach, administrator or friend of the university.

Entries and nominations may be turned in at the Alva Chamber of Commerce Office, 502 Oklahoma Blvd. Entries also may be submitted by visiting www.nwosu.edu/2011-homecoming-theme. Also, entries may be submitted by visiting Northwestern’s Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/nwosu.rangers. Click on the discussion group tab to find the link to add ideas.
