Big Winners for #MiniScotty

Winners will receive Barnes and Noble gift cards in various denominations

The birth of #miniscotty

After weeks of grueling deliberations, we can now reveal the winners of the #MiniScotty photo contest! Thousands of Highlanders assembled their own Scotty Highlander from a die-cut paper figure found in the Fall 2014 issue of UCR Magazine.

Many took amazing photos and posted them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #MiniScotty. We chose photos with the most creative locations, school spirit and clever captions; 14 winners will receive Barnes & Noble gift cards in three denominations so they can grab new UCR gear just in time for Homecoming on Saturday.

Congratulations to all who won! (The honorable mentions aren’t too shabby either.) Please get in touch with Jennifer Merrett (jennifer.merrett@ucr.edu) for information on how to claim your prize. Go Highlanders!

(Don’t forget, the figure is still available for download from the UCR Homecoming website — it’s not too late to make your own!)
