This Month in One Book

A Note from Harvey Young, One Book One Northwestern Faculty Chair

It’s March! At the One Book office, we’re putting all of our energy into the “We are Northwestern” photo contest! It’s a contest—with cash prizes. The contest celebrates the spirit of Northwestern. We’re looking for pictures of Wildcat spirit. It could be people marching through the arch, cheering on the team at a game, studying at the library, backstage at Shanley…to name just a few of the many, many possibilities. To enter, simply email your picture(s) in JPEG format with a title to onebook@northwestern.edu. We will post it on the One Book Facebook page so people can vote for it. (https://www.facebook.com/OneBookNU) and include your name, school/year and the title of your picture. It’s that easy. The submission deadline is March 30, 2015.
