Contest 3: Baby, you’re a firework!
Story To College Ambassador Ying Bin is modeling the t-shirt that you could win by participating in this week’s contest! The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the t-shirt is SERIOUSLY bright.
If you could add any sport (real or imagined) to the Olympics what would it be and why. What is the criteria for judging the sport (judges, points, goals, etc.). If the sport is imagined please submit a detailed description.
You’ll get practice using your creative mind to answer bizarre questions (see University of Chicago’s supplemental question “Where is Waldo?” as an example) and in Olympics season mode.

Contest: Quotes about getting started!
This week we celebrate Independence Day, a day to barbecue, relax, wear red, white and blue, watch fireworks, and listen to “Firework” by Katy Perry on a constant loop.
Imagine there is a prompt on the Common App that requires you to describe your 4th of July, think about what you would write about, and then send it to us in picture form! Reblog this post with a picture of the best moment from your Independence Day by FRIDAY at MIDNIGHT.
**Also, remember that everyone (including college admissions officers) can see what you post on the Internet so use the blogosphere wisely.
