Calling all alumni! Participate in the most cherished of Michigan Tech traditions.
Here’s your chance to show your family and friends what an iron is really for. Or maybe you’ve had a great idea for a “snow” statue made out of something other than snow.
We know that nothing compares to snow in the Keweenaw. We also hold tightly to our Tech traditions like Winter Carnival.
The Michigan Tech Alumni Board of Directors has partnered with Blue Key and Alumni Engagement to offer a “Snow” Statue Contest for alumni and their friends and families.
We want to see your creations on this year’s theme "Come One, Come All To Our 100th Carnival".
There will be multiple categories for competition, accounting for a variety of materials that may be available to our alumni as well as multi-day and single day events.
Contest runs January 1-31 with a midnight EST deadline. Participants must include at least one Michigan Tech alumnus/alumna.
- Snow Statue – 24 Hour
- Snow Statue – Multi-day

Statues should be self-supporting and sculptural (three dimensional)
*Other materials could include such things as sand, clay, wood, LegoⓇ bricks, styrofoam, metal, glass, and plastic.
**Fabricated (e.g., 3D-printed, cast, machined) statues must be original designs by participant(s) (not templates) and will be judged separately from other materials.
***Virtual statues include 3D drawings, animation or other virtual designs.
Statues must include a name and title/caption (e.g., Sigma Mu Delta, “Oh No! It’s the Loch Ice Monster” ).
Statue descriptions may be included in the entry form.
Additional coloring (beyond your material base color) may only be used in the lettering of your group’s name, insignia, or statue title/caption. Coloring is limited to the statue title block; absolutely no coloring can be used on the statue itself.
Statues will be judged based on photos and entry form submitted.
Winners will be announced February 10, 2022.
