Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University, in cooperation with
the school's sports communication class, has announced its first
"Month of the Bulldog Fan" social media initiative.

The "Month of the Bulldog Fan" will run from now thru May 20 and fans will be able to win prizes, including shirts and more in a special "Bulldog gear" photo competition that runs thru the end of the school year.
To enter, fans can take a photo of themselves and/or their friends in their favorite Bulldog apparel and email the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org with a name and email address. The top photos will be posted on Ferris State's social media platforms throughout the month and winners will be chosen periodically to receive a prize with notification via email. Complete contest rules and restrictions are attached.
The top submissions in the photo contest will be eligible win win a grand prize consisting of a one-night stay at the Holiday Inn and four tickets to a home football game of their choice in 2013 (excluding homecoming).
Additionally, fans are also encouraged to submit their "most memorable" Bulldog Athletics moments in history via email with the top submissions earning an opportunity to win additional prizes. Some of the top fan moments will also be tweeted and shared via FSU's social media platforms throughout the next month.
In addition to the opportunity to win prizes, fans will also be treated to exciting social media updates and posts during the "Month of the Bulldog Fan" on the school's official athletics facebook and twitter platforms. The daily updates will include such items as historical moments in Bulldog history, important Bulldog facts, breaking news, features, alumni notes of interest and more.
All Bulldog fans can help Ferris State increase its reach by encouraging others to join the "Bulldog Nation" on facebook and twitter throughout the month.
The event is being coordinated by the sports communication class at Ferris State under the direction of Dr. Sandy Alspach in cooperation with Ferris State Athletics.
Thank you to all Bulldog Fans!
