ILO Selfie Contest     

Deadline Extended: April 23, 2015  

Hi Everyone, Show your school spirit! The ILO selfie contest has been extended until April 23rd. Please spread the word! You should enter, too! The Learning Assessment Committee is sponsoring another ILO contest as part of our Student Awareness Campaign. As you know, one of the ACCJC requirements is to make sure that students know about our Institutional Learning Outcomes, so this contest is a great way to do that! This semester’s contest involves: 1. Finding an ILO poster or banner. Take a selfie or have someone else take a photo of you in front of the banner or poster. 2. “Like” the “Laney College LAC” Facebook page. 3. Post your selfie on this page. Along with your photo, post a statement of why you chose the ILO you did: why is it meaningful or important to you? How  does the ILO relate to your educational goals at Laney? 4. If you do not have a facebook account, you may enter the contest by e-mailing your photo and caption to: 5. If you win, we will send you a private message via facebook. We will also verify that you are a current student at Laney. The posts with captions that thoughtfully answer the questions in #3 above will be entered into a random drawing. The prizes for this drawing are:

  • An iPad Air 2 in gold.
  • A $100 gift card to the Laney College Bookstore.
  • five 32GB flash drives.

 The flyer advertising the contest with all the details is attached. Feel free to print the flyer and make copies for your students. We made a simplified flyer in addition to the original flyer with the pictures. Use whichever one you want. And guess what?? Faculty and staff can enter the contest too! The prizes for faculty and staff are one of five $20 gift certificates for the Laney Bistro.  In your caption, explain how one of the ILOs best relates to what you do at Laney, and why it’s meaningful to you. Winners will be randomly chosen.   Please specify that you are faculty or staff in your post.

The post with the most “likes” wins a $100 gift card to the Laney College Bookstore.

The most creative post will also win a $100 Laney bookstore gift card.
