How it works

For 24 hours starting at 8:00 am on Sept. 20, 2017, post pictures or videos to your publicly visible Instagram using the hashtag #1dayartsci. Each submission should show a memorable event or experience in your day as an arts & science student.

There is no limit to the number of entries you can make. Just be sure to include #1dayartsci in each one!

Winners will be chosen from the best entries and announced later in September. Each winner will receive a fabulous prize (you can even win more than one!) and winning submissions will be featured on the usask Instagram or in college promotions.


The College of Arts & Science is giving away 15 prizes worth up to $500 each! One post could be all it takes to win.

What makes
a good entry?

The best entries combine a gorgeous photo/video with a creative caption. Try to capture fun and fascinating experiences that are happening because you’ve chosen to study in the College of Arts & Science.

Watch for unexpected moments of beauty or curiosity in your day as a student. They can be big or small, on or off campus: in the lab, on your way to class, hanging out in the Bowl.
