The deadline for entries is Thursday, Feb. 20. Entries can be turned in to the SoC office, LSH 290. The submission form can be found below.

Named for Lake Superior Hall, the awards will recognize student work that is “superior” in quality. Winners will receive prize money donated from area Advertising and Public Relations firms and companies.
