Departmental Door Decorating Information


Event Date: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 @ 3pm


The departmental door decorating contest is a way for campus departments to participate in Homecoming activities, too. Decorate your campus department’s main entrance, to express Southern Poly Spirit throughout the week.


  • Any on-campus department.



  • All departments must email Leigh Ann Soublis at by Friday, January 25, 2013 by 4pm to be judged.
  • Displays should not hinder the flow of traffic into your office.
  • Select one door to decorate.  You are welcome to also decorate the entryway or vestibule around the door or an adjacent door, but only one normal-sized door (approx. size 3’x7’) will be judged.
  • Your display should include your department’s name, but it should not dominate the overall display.
  • Be creative – limit spending (no state funds!) to no more than $10.  Consider recycling!  Please note that you should use scotch tape on doors.  No nails, staples, push pins, etc.
  • This door is NOT to be used to campaign for Royalty Candidates; if a candidate’s name or picture appears on the door, it will be disqualified.
  • No glitter or beads can be used on the door.
  • Please obtain permission from your department head or direct supervisor to decorate your office’s door.



Criteria includes:

  • Creativity and originality
  • Use of Homecoming theme
  • Southern Poly spirit
  • Overall appearance
  • Use of Recycled Materials
  • Teamwork/Collaboration
