Celebration of Nations is including a new contest this year: a Mini-Float Parade Competition. Participants will create a float on a platform, no larger than 4- by 6-feet and meet the following guidelines. Please consider getting your department or a student group you advise to participate in the competition.
The theme is “Wonders of the World,” and registration is due Monday, Sept. 18.
