At the University of Chicago, we believe that there’s no limit to the ways you can choose to express your own ideas. Your mask can be a great form of artistic expression, too. That’s why UChicago is proud to announce Show Us Your Mask!
Start dreaming up your designs, take a photo or make a video, and submit below. You could win some cool prizes!
Participants must be current high school students or undergraduates in the College.
Contestants may submit entries from Tuesday, September 15, 2020 through October 21, 2020. Weekly winners will be announced each Thursday!
