Once again, it’s time for OBU’s annual Spotlight on Shawnee event! This yearly event allows Shawnee merchants to showcase their businesses to OBU students, faculty and administration. Last year over 70 businesses, churches and organizations participated along with approximately 1,000 students! This event is held as part of our Welcome Week on Thursday, August 21st from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at OBU. We will reserve a table for you and have student volunteers available to help you set up and take down your display.
Door Prizes for Students
College students LOVE free stuff! We encourage you to give out coupons to your place of business, freebies with your business logo on them from your table and/or a DOOR PRIZE that students can win via a drawing. We will announce your business and the door prize winner over the loudspeakers in order to promote your business to all participants. Door prizes are a huge hit every year!
Where is it? Held at Oklahoma Baptist University in the oval located on University Drive. If you need your table close to electricity, let us know. Be sure to bring your own power cord. Power cords will NOT be provided.
Where do I park? Please use the parking lot in front of the Noble Complex on University Drive. You may begin setting up at 6 pm.
Where do I check in? Come to the registration table located in the middle of the OBU Oval, to let us know you have arrived.
Who’s coming? Conservatively estimating, we should have at least 1,000 students attend. In addition, businesses, churches and organizations will have exposure to our faculty, staff, and administration as well. We will be issuing GREEN wristbands to all OBU students, faculty, and staff so they can easily be identified.
Can I give stuff away? Please bring fliers, coupons, and “freebie” items to give away at your table. If you provide a Door Prize for students, your business/church/or organization name, the prize, and the winner will be announced over the loudspeaker. We will use a numbered system to draw for the door prizes. Please remember to complete the door prize form that will be taped to your table when you arrive and hand it in at the registration table. Once we draw the name and announce the winner we will send the student back to your table with the door prize form to collect the prize.
Can I bring food to give away? Yes!
I have questions. Whom should I contact? Feel free to call 585-5260 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
