QSN Spirit Award

Contest Overview

As a part of our annual tradition, we are excited to invite all QSN Chapters to participate in the QSN Spirit Award Contest. Collaborate with Scholars on your campus to celebrate QuestBridge Scholar identity. Your chapter can showcase spirit in a variety of ways. For inspiration, view videos of previous winning entries such as UVA's Snapchat takeover and Wellesley's invention of “QuestBread."

Important note for this year: To be inclusive to all of QSN, and keep everyone safe, we are asking all QSN Chapters to organize virtual initiatives for your spirit award submission. No matter your chapter size or current distance-learning constraints, all chapters have an equal chance of winning and are encouraged to let their creativity shine. Take a look at the contest details below, and may the most spirited chapter win!
