Forecast calls for blizzard of Bobcat-inspired snow creatures

January 29, 2021

A snowman with a plaid scarf stands in front of an illuminated student center.

With snow in the forecast, it's time to start planning the perfect snow creature — and in case you needed added incentive, we have a paw full of perfect prizes for Boomer's favorite entries.

Students, staff, faculty and their families are encouraged to participate through February 21 — on campus or in their own backyards.

The rules are simple:

Members of #BobcatNation are encouraged to add their own creative touches that make their snow creatures unique. It can be a traditional snowman, or you can build an animal, sculpture, your favorite movie or television character or even favorite Quinnipiac landmark.

Accessories may be used, but all entries must be appropriate for public display — and please remember to socially distance throughout the planning and building process.

When you're done, take a photo of your creation with at least one of the Bobcat builders for scale, and then:

Upload a photo of your snow creation here.

We'll share our favorites on social media and on MyQ.

A total of four $25 Amazon gift cards will be awarded; one for each of the following categories:

  • Best traditional snowman
  • Best snow creation
  • Most creative
  • Most Bobcat spirit

The winners will be determined from all submissions after February 24.
