Monthly Snowfall Contest

The season of snow is upon us. Do you think you know what Heikki Lunta has in store for us each month? Alumni, friends, students, faculty, staff, and Michigan Tech retirees are invited to predict our monthly snowfall for the annual Snowfall Contest.

If your guess is closest to the total amount of snow that falls in the Keweenaw for the month, you'll win a totally-Tech gift (like a gift card for the University Bookstore, a husky statue snow globe, winter survival kit, pasty vouchers, pint glass, or Tech gear). Good luck!

Enter to Win—March

First Prize
The most accurate guess that doesn’t go over the actual snowfall total earns a Totally Tech prize package that includes Huskies gear from the Campus Bookstore and regional goodies, such as thimbleberry jam or pasties.

Consolation Drawing
A Winter Survival Kit will be awarded to a contest participant chosen at random from among all entries for that month.

Contest Rules
A maximum of three entries per person must be submitted by day 10 of the month for that month, with the winner announced early in the next month. For example, March monthly contest entries must be received by March 10, 2017. The winner will be announced in early April.  

Best of luck to all!

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