College Colors Day, Sept 4 2015

2015 College Colors Day Challenge

As part of the 11th annual College Colors Day celebration, MSU is participating in the inaugural College Colors Challenge and encouraging fan support across social media for the Bobcats. The grand prize is a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

The College Colors Challenge is a new socially-fueled national contest celebrating the excitement of college football as the season begins. Through participating in a series of photo and video challenges on social media, fans can flaunt their colors, express their school spirit, and vie for a trip to college football’s title game. The challenges revolve around three categories represented by the hash-tags: #SQUADPIC (large group), #FAMPHOTO (family), and #SELFIE (individual).  Some of the challenges include fans posting an epic trick shot video while wearing their colors, an awkward college colors family photo, and college colors displayed at the office. 

Bobcat fans are encouraged to download the College Colors app (currently available in both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store) and visit for full challenge details.  The grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, and two tickets to the national championship game in Glendale, AZ, courtesy of CLC and the College Football Playoff.

The College Colors Challenge kicks off on Monday, August 10. Winners for the first set of challenges will be announced via on College Colors Day, Friday, September 4.  Each month during the college football season, three new challenges will be issued for a chance to win exciting prizes, including two more opportunities to win two tickets to the national championship game.

Bobcat HorizonMSU is one of the newest additions to Horizon Air’s fleet of aircrafts that are university-themed. The MSU plane is painted in blue and gold and displays the bobcat head mark on the tail, the collegiate “M” at the back of the plane, Go Cats text on the wings, and the university logo near the front of the plane.

“This is certainly one of our biggest promotional opportunities to date,” said Julie Kipfer, director of marketing and creative services at Montana State University. “We are excited to increase our exposure and visibility in the Northwest region where many of our students, alumni and fans live and travel.”

The first flight of the freshly painted Q400 Turboprop will be from Seattle to Bozeman on November 30, 2010.  After that, the plane will travel on all Horizon routes and may be seen all over the Northwest region.
