Snowfall on campus

Yearly Snowfall Contest

The Snowfall Contest is now closed.

Thank you for your interest in the Michigan Tech Snowfall Contest. On June 1, the winner will be chosen from all the entries submitted. A consolation prize will be chosen from all the entries submitted.

Do you have any memorable snow experiences? We'd like to hear from you.


First Prize
A two-night stay in a Memorial Union or Wadsworth Hall guest room and a deluxe Michigan Tech Winter Survival Kit complete with hoodie, gloves, hat, scarf, blanket and snowbrush.  

Consolation Drawing
A mini version of the winter survival kit will be awarded to a contest participant chosen at random from among all entries.

Contest Rules

Maximum of three entries per person must be submitted by midnight February 15, 2016. Winners will be chosen June 1, if the snow has stopped by then. The guess closest to the Keweenaw Research Center recorded total, without exceeding the actual amount, earns first prize.  

Good Luck!

University Advancement and Keweenaw Research Center staff and student employees are ineligible.
