Spirit Challenge 2:  UA-PTC Values

Update: The winner of the Values spirit challenge is the Business and Industry Center, with their video UA-PTC Values Video. Congratulations!

Watch the video: UA-PTC Values Video. (You must be logged into campus email to access the video.)

The focus of this challenge is on the UA-PTC Values and Value Statements. You will have more flexibility this time, and there will be more categories and more opportunities to win.

The Challenge: Create an artifact (video, a jingle, a game, a poster, a piece of art, etc.) that conveys our values and value statements.

Fine Print

By submitting an artifact, you are agreeing to allow us to share it on social media, post it in a newsletter, or use it any way we want (other than to sell). If you use images or video of students, please get written permission to use their images.  We may want to exhibit the physical artifacts in a lobby somewhere. Offer not available in all states. Prices subject to change. Use only with adult supervision. Warranty voided if tag removed. Contents may have shifted in transit.

Spirit Challenge 1: MISSION: POSSIBLE

Use your imagination and creativity to come up with a memorable video that conveys the UA-PTC Mission Statement.

Show your school spirit by coming up with the best video to represent the College.

Good morning, UA-PTC.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

Instructions: Create a video in which you and/or your team recite, sing, or otherwise communicate the UA-PTC mission statement.  The video should be no longer than five minutes, and the wording must be correct.

Deadline: Submit a link to your video to by October 6 to get a chance to win a trophy and bragging rights.

As always, should any member of your force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions.  This email will self-destruct in five seconds (or not). Good luck.

By submitting a link to your video, you are authorizing us to post your video to social media, the website, or anywhere else we think we can use it.
