The Northerner

The Northerner Labor Day Instagram Contest!

logo@3xLabor Day is quickly approaching, which means NKU students will get a well-earned three-day weekend. The Northerner wants to know how NKU students are spending their Labor Day weekend. To make things more interesting, the staff has decided to host a competition. A picture says a thousand words, so we’re taking this contest to Instagram!

Going to see the fireworks?  Celebrating the holiday with your family by having a picnic? Snap a pic and upload it to Instagram. Include the hashtag #NKULaborDay and tag the official Northerner page (northernermedia) to enter. The photo with the most likes will win two tickets to the Midpoint Music Festival, so be sure to share your pictures with your friends!

Here are the rules:

  1. Users must be following the Northerner’s Instagram account AND must be an NKU student.  @northernermedia.
  2. Users can upload as many photo entries as they like, but they must use the hashtag #NKULaborDay for each entry.
  3. Entries must also tag @northernermedia in each of their entries.
  4. Keep your photos appropriate! If you have to ask if something is appropriate, it probably isn’t.
  5. Your photos must be uploaded to your account, following the above guidelines, by noon on Tuesday, September 8th. The staff will determine which picture is the most liked at that time.
  6. The winner will be contacted by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets will be available for pickup in the Northerner office (GH 125) the next day.
