  • No profanity or inappropriate content
  • You can chalk as an individual or you can team up but you must be a student to win the prize
  • Chalk will be provided
  • You can finish at anytime within the hour and fifteen minute time frame (1:15-2:30)
  • Chalking will end at 2:30 so that the judges have enough time to review, ask questions, and hand out the prize.

This event is meant to inspire community and well being within ourselves and as a shared concept for others. Spectators are much encouraged but please be respectful and encouraging to all participants.

The rain date for this event will be July 28, 1:00 PM, at the Husky statue.
