Better start laying out the Halloween outfit, because SC4 Student Government is hosting a costume contest Oct. 31.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. in the College Center Café, and continue until 2 p.m.

Both students and faculty are encouraged to participate.

There will be a grand prize of a large bag of candy, as well as three runner-up prizes consisting of smaller bags of candy.

Participants will be assigned a number upon signing up for the event. Photographers from the Erie Square Gazette will then take a picture, which will be used by the Student Government to grade the submissions.

Costumes will be rated on two criteria: creativity and design.

“We’re looking for out of the ordinary costumes,” said Student Government President Sean Lathrop. “We want to see costumes that you don’t normally see, and the more detailed, the better.”

According to student treasurer and co-creator of the event, Brian Heidt, we can expect to see more events like this.

“The Student Government is looking to host a major event each month of the semester for the students on campus,” says Heidt. “It is a means to get students more involved in campus life.”

Marketing Management Club will also be hosting an unannounced horror film in the College Center Café at the same time the costume contest takes place.

Nearly 100 participants are expected to show up.

Dress up, show up, and have fun.
