Festival of Trees
Monday - Friday | December 3-7, 2018
This year for Festival of Trees we want to make sure that all organizations participating are aware of the main purpose of this event. The trees being decorated are a way to lighten the mood for students before finals, and it is a great way for organizations to reach USU students. The true purpose of this event is to give back to our community. Each of the trees that are decorated will be given to a family within Cache County who may be struggling financially this holiday season.
The Traditions committee would like the time spent decorating a tree worth it for both the organization-members and the family receiving the tree. As such, we will be charging a fee of $10 to reserve a tree (there are a limited number of trees available).
Please take time to plan decorations your organization is proud of and a family will be happy to see this holiday season.
In order to reward the organizations who put forth stellar effort, there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trees, as decided by student and community voters.
(The money will be directly transferred into the organization’s budget through the university, and will be given to the organization that earns the most votes per category by the end of the week)
Tree decorating will begin on December 3, 2018 at 5 p.m. and continue until 7 p.m. in the TSC lounges.
Voting for trees will be open the whole week from December 3-7, 2018. Voting will close on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 5 p.m.
It is highly encouraged that organizations use social media to help their tree win a prize and to let everyone know about this awesome event!
