Instagram Contest

What is your OHIO tradition? In the spirit of this year’s theme – “1804 and so much more” – our 2019 Homecoming Instagram contest challenges you to share a photo that captures that piece of OHIO that you carry with you, keep alive, or recreate.

Whether it’s your annual reunion with your Bobcat crew or nailing the Burrito Buggy recipe in your home kitchen, post your OHIO tradition to Instagram for your chance to win our amazing prize: A two-night stay at the OU Inn during Homecoming 2020!
