2016-2017 Issue 1


Our back-to-class contest is now open! You can enter in three ways. Bring it on McGillians!


Dare to share your gifts (aka fantastic talents!) with #McGillSCS and be entered to win a $150 Le James Bookstore certificate. Completing one of the following (one entry per person):
1. Share a photo or video of your gift to our Facebook Page by posting to on our wall. (Don’t post to your personal wall!)
2. Share your gift through an Instagram post with the hashtag #daretoshareSCS and tag @McGillSCS
3. Share your gift through a Tweet using the hashtag #daretoshareSCS and tag @McGillSCS
The winner will be selected randomly after the deadline of February 9th.


Need an example? Our Graphic Designer Kevin’s gift is some mean scrabble skills!


Terms & Conditions – Updated 1/17/2018
SWEEPSTAKES: Share a “gift” with us: a talent, skill or unique knowledge. Take a photo of you showing off your best talent or skill, or take a photo of something that represents your gifted brain! You can share via Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook*.
ENTRIES: One entry per person. Participant must be a current undergraduate, graduate, independent or professional development McGill student with a valid student ID as of 12:05 AM February 9, 2018. Entries may be made via:
· Twitter: Post a video/photo of your talent or gift with the hashtag #daretoshareSCS and the tag @McGillSCS. Only one account per individual – duplicate accounts are not permitted and are a violation of Twitter rules. For example, retweeting or quoting another entry will not count as two entries, or as an entry for an additional account.
· Facebook: Post a video/photo of your talent or gift to the “visitor posts” section of the McGill SCS Facebook Page with the hashtag #daretoshareSCS. Only posts on the official McGill SCS page will be counted; posts on personal timelines will not be entered to win.
· Instagram: Post a video/photo of your talent or gift with the hashtag #daretoshareSCS and the tag @McGillSCS. Only one entry per person (no duplicate accounts or reposts).
No purchase is necessary to enter. During and after the conclusion of the contest, use of the photos by McGill SCS may include social media, marketing and other purposes. Note that the validity of each submission will be at the sole discretion of McGill School of Continuing Studies staff. Get creative, but be sure to avoid any objectionable or inappropriate content. *Anything that is violent, sexual, or hateful in nature, or deemed inappropriate by McGill SCS staff, will be deleted and the entry will be disqualified.*
PRIZE: The prize is a gift card valued at $150 for Le James Bookstore. This is awarded to one randomly selected eligible entry at the end of the period (January 12 – February 9, 2018). If, in selecting the winner, we find the entry is not valid, we will select a new entry one at a time until a valid entry is found.
17 JANUARY 2018 UPDATES: Due to technical difficulties, the 3rd Party software originally used to host this contest is unavailable. While keeping any entries made on that system intact, we are moving to a new sweepstakes-style drawing. Note the extension of the sweepstakes until February 9, 2018. Note that there is no voting aspect for this sweepstakes. Note that the winner will be selected randomly by McGill SCS staff. Note the changes to the entry requirements to include text entries (except on Instagram) and to include entries made on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Note that there is no longer a dedicated gallery or upload page.
* Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are not affiliated with this contest in any way, nor have they sponsored any aspect of this contest, and are trademarked by their respective organizations.
