In honor of the CMU’s 50th anniversary of being open to the public, we will be celebrating all month with our Find the 50 contest! During the month of April, each week will be dedicated to a different “Find the 50” weekly challenge where students must either find or create their own number 50 befitting the weekly theme.

Each week the post with the most likes will win a $10 in Dragon Dollars and the overall top 10 posts with the most likes will also be entered for a drawing of a $50 MSUM Bookstore gift card! Each week’s theme will be open from 12:01am Monday to 11:59pm on Sunday. All submissions must be posted prior to the 11:59pm Sunday deadline in order to be eligible.

“Find the 50” weekly themes:

April 3 – 9: Most Creative 50

April 10 – 16: 50 in Comstock Memorial Union

April 17 – 23: 50 in the Least Likely Place

April 24 – 30: 50 with the most DragonPride

Note: We reserve the right to disqualify a post, despite the amount of likes, to disqualify a post if the picture does not fit the theme. Winning participates must be a currently enrolled student.


To enter: Share your photo of the number 50 on Instagram or Twitter with the #CMUCelebrating50 hashtag or tag @MSUMStudentLife and make sure that your privacy settings are public! Student Union and Activities staff will monitor posts to determine the winner each week as as well as the 10 other finalists. SUA Staff reserve the right to remove any inappropriate content and any inappropriate or offensive posts will be disqualified from the contest.

The drawing of the top 10 for each week will take place April 28th, 2017 during the CMU Birthday Celebration! Don’t miss your chance to #GetActive and get creative while celebrating the 50 years of Minnesota State University Moorhead’s CMU! #CMUCelebrating50
