Hold a contest with $1,000 in prizes for students to write, compose and perform the most creative song about their experience at WMU.
The contest could include categories for submissions including: blues, pop, rap, ballad, protest. There could also be a section for specific formats such as mobile phone ring tones. Voting could be done by panel or popular vote. Prizes could include cash, gift certificates to campus stores, movie tickets to local theaters, and dinner at restaurants in downtown Kalamazoo.
The contest would provide a creative venue where students could present their unique point of view about their experience as a student. The contest could also provide an interesting student life experience for both participants and audiences.
