Instagram Contest

Torchbearers Instagram Contest

The conference team has created an Instagram contest that gives you the opportunity to win a free ticket to this year's TIU Student Leadership Conference! We’ll pick 2 winning photos—one from each category below. The deadline is Thursday, April 17 at 3pm. Upload your photos to Facebook or directly to Instagram with the hashtag #tiu360. Each student is able to upload a maximum of 5 pictures per category to be considered for one of the two competition prizes.


1. Most Clever Torch

This category is designed to get your gears spinning and is not concerned with location of the photo. You are to use, design, or create your very own “torch” to pose with.
Caution: Do not use inappropriate or dangerous objects in your pictures or you will be automatically disqualified.





2. Most Clever Torch Bearing Location

Similar to the “planking” phenomenon, we have coined a new term called “torch bearing.” This entails taking off one of your shoes in a peculiar place and holding it up like a torch while standing on leg.




The Fine Print

To enter the competition you must upload a photo through Facebook or directly to Instagram with the hashtag #tiu360. The final closing date is April 17th at 3pm. No further entries will be permitted after this date. Winners will be chosen on that day and be notified through Instagram. If you do not claim the prize within 5 days, we reserve the right to withdraw the prize from the winner. Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges from Emerging Kingdom Leaders. The competition prize includes free admission to Trinity International University’s 360 High School Leadership Conference at a value of $80. If a student who has already registered wins, they will receive a refund of conference admission in the form of a giftcard.

By participating in the contest, students are granting permission for their photo(s) to be potentially posted on our website or Facebook page.
