We want to see your Wake Forest-inspired jack-o’-lanterns. Whether it’s carving a WF into your pumpkin, painting on some black and gold stripes, or spotting a Demon Deacon-themed creation, share your #wfupumpkin photos with us!
Contest runs: Now through 12 p.m. on Thursday, November 1, the day after Halloween.
Open to: All Wake Foresters.
To enter: Carve or decorate your pumpkin in the spirit of Wake Forest, snap a photo of it, and share it with us. There are many ways to share. On Twitter, follow @WakeForest1834 and tweet us your photo and tag it #wfupumpkin. On Facebook, like Wake Forest University and post your photo to our wall. On Instagram, follow @wfuniversity and post your photo with the tag #wfupumpkin. Finalists will be announced on Thursday, November 1. Wake Foresters will vote for their favorite to determine the winner.
Guidelines: There is no limit to the number of photos you can enter. Photos will be judged primarily on the quality and originality of the pumpkin creation, not the photo itself.
Thanks to Eric Bihl (’10) for sharing his Demon Deacon pumpkin, pictured in the thumbnail above. Need some inspiration? The pumpkins below fit the bill:
In total, 10 pumpkins were entered. All of the entries were featured in a Facebook album, and Wake Foresters had about 16 hours to vote on their favorite #wfupumpkin. 386 total votes were cast in that time period. With 121 votes, the winner of the best #wfupumpkin was Don Pocock (’97, ’00)!
The Office of Alumni Engagement’s mission is to find exciting new ways to connect Wake Forest alumni, friends and family. Once a Deac, always a Deac – and we’re here for you. Each day we leap out of bed humming the fight song, ready to create the moments that keep the spirit of Wake Forest present in your world.
