11/14/16 - Maroon Edition “Overcomer” Video Contest

November 14-18, 2016

Like the author of “Three Little Words,” students from Mississippi State University have faced painful hardships in life. In celebration of being overcomers, we want you to share your story. In a 1-2.5 minute video, describe a challenge you have experienced in your life and how you prevailed against the odds. We encourage you to be creative and to express yourself in a way that will inspire students and faculty to overcome the challenges they may experience in their lives. Prizes will be given away for the most creative and most impactful entries. This event will be co-sponsored by the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center and the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion.
