ACADSA would like to invite you to participate in this community while offering a way to win prizes for doing so!
Listed here are a variety of ways that ACAD students can engage in the community to increase their success as a student and grow as an emerging artist. By attending these events and completing the tasks outlined, you are eligible to collect stamps in your ACADSA Event Passport. Unless otherwise specified, simply attend the events and speak with the designated ACADSA representative to collect your stamp. If a task asks that you collect a signature from an ACADSA partner, they will sign your Event Passport in the stamp box in lieu of the ACADSA stamp.
Collect 10 stamps or signatures in your Event Passport and drop it off in the ACADSA office to be entered into a draw for prizes. Students can collect as many Event Passports as they would like over the course of the year to increase their odds of winning!
Who can participate?
Any ACAD student who is registered in a minimum of one class in both the fall and winter semesters of the 2016 – 2017 academic year and who has paid their ACADSA membership fees.
