Two lucky win­ners will each win a $50 gift cer­tifi­cate to the store! Here’s how it works:

The con­test starts RIGHT NOW and ends on Sun­day March 1, 2015 at 5 PM. Once the con­test is closed, the win­ners will be cho­sen! One win­ner will be cho­sen by the pho­to with the most likes and the oth­er win­ner will be cho­sen by the staff at KU.

How do you enter? Sim­ply take a pho­to of your favorite KU thing (you are more than wel­come to pho­tograph it in the store! Tell us if you do! WERE ALL ABOUT IT!)  and post it to Insta­gram with the hash­tag #MyFa­voriteKUThing. You can sub­mit as many entries as you’d like! You must be fol­low­ing @KardsUnlimited on Insta­gram, and in order for your photo(s) to be eli­gi­ble your account has to be pub­lic (so peeps can vote for your pho­to and we can see it too!) Entrants must be 13 years or old­er and a res­i­dent (or stu­dent) in Allegheny Coun­ty.

Here are a few sam­ple entries! Feel free to be as kooky and sil­ly and fun as you’d like! We like fun, in case you didn’t know :)
