From March to April, the Cougar Den is running a ticket contest where five students could win a care package for exam week.
The ticket contest was created by Cougar Den Manager, Barbie. She said the drawing will most likely be on April 30th, the last Friday of the month. She will draw five names, email them, and they can pick them up starting May 3rd. If the student doesn’t respond to the email, she will redraw.
“It’s kind of fun because it is low key,” Barbie said. “It’s just kind of fun I think and different and it will be a nice reward for exam week.”
Barbie said she isn’t sure what will go in the care packages besides her personal treat. “I’m going to personally make some hot chocolate cocoa bombs that I have been playing with,” Barbie said.
Barbie has a list of ideas to get from the Dollar Store or make herself:
- Stress ball
- Healthy snack
- Study supplies
- Microwave popcorn
- Energy drinks
- Playing cards
- Coloring books
To enter the contest, all students have to do is buy something with their cougar cash in the Cougar Den. They will be given a blue ticket to sign. The ticket will be added to a jar to be drawn from.
“We are having fun filling that jar,” Barbie said. “It’s like a third of the way full. It’s fun watching the jar fill up with the tickets. And it’s easy for people to just write their names down and go…I almost wish I could give everybody one.”
