Wear black and gold, win trip to College Football Playoff National Championship

Vanderbilt is participating in the 2015 College Colors Challenge and is asking for support from Commodore fans across social media.

Participating fans will have a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship, scheduled for Jan. 11, 2016, in Glendale, Arizona.

The College Colors Challenge is a national contest celebrating the excitement of college football as the season begins. By participating in a series of photo and video challenges on social media, fans can flaunt their colors, express their school spirit, and vie for a trip to college football’s title game.

The challenges revolve around three categories represented by the hash tags #SQUADPIC (large group), #FAMPHOTO (family) and #SELFIE (individual).  Some of the challenges include fans posting an epic trick-shot video while wearing their school’s colors, an “awkward family photo” featuring their colors, and college colors displayed at the office.

Commodore fans are encouraged to download the College Colors app (currently available in both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store) and visit for full challenge details. The grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations and two tickets to the national championship game courtesy of the Collegiate Licensing Company and the College Football Playoff.

The College Colors Challenge kicks off on Monday, Aug. 10. Winners for the first set of challenges will be announced via on College Colors Day, Friday, Sept. 4. Each month during the college football season, three new challenges will be issued for a chance to win exciting prizes, including two more opportunities to win a pair of tickets to the national championship game.

College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that embody the college experience. Fans across the United States are encouraged to wear the apparel of their favorite college or university throughout the day.
