UL Lafayette is once again inviting everyone to celebrate the positive impact the university has had on the development of Acadiana by wearing red on Sept. 2. The sixth annual Wear Red Day is being held in conjunction with National College Colors Day.

Fans are encouraged to participate in school, business and sign competitions. Here’s how each works:

• School contest: The Wear Red Champion award will be given to the school that is most creative in wearing red with a plaque to proudly display at the school. In addition, the winning school will receive a Deano’s pizza party featuring special Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns® pizza. Because many schools have their own spirit shirt day on Fridays, schools can wear red on any day during the week of Aug. 29 – Sept. 2.

• Business contest: Three categories including small, medium and large businesses will compete for the highest percentage of employees wearing red. The winning businesses will be recognized as 2011 Wear Red Champions during an on-field presentation at a home football game this Fall.

• Creative sign contest: UL Lafayette will recognize the most creative Wear Red slogan or catch phrase that is displayed at your business location. This message should be displayed on the company’s outdoor sign or electronic marquee. The winning business will be presented with a plaque during an on-field presentation at a home football game this Fall.

• UL Lafayette campus contest: university departments, offices, organizations and clubs are encouraged to wear red and decorate their work spaces. The group or office with the most spirit will be named winners.

To enter these competitions, schools, businesses and campus groups should take a photo of everyone wearing red and post it to the Wear Red Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RaginCajunsWearRed or email the photo to wearred@louisiana.edu by Sept. 12.

The same submission policy should be followed for the slogan/sign competition. Please also include the number of people in the photos along with the total number of students or employees at your school or business.

All winners will be announced at home football game this season.

For more information about these contests, please contact Communications and Marketing at (337) 482-6397.
