 As part of the 11th annual College Colors Day celebration, the University of Wyoming is participating in the inaugural College Colors Challenge and encouraging fan support across social media for the Cowboys. The grand prize is a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

Fans across Wyoming are encouraged to wear UW apparel Friday, Sept. 4.

Through 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 hashtags: #SQUADPIC (large group), #FAMPHOTO (family) and #SELFIE (individual). Some of the challenges include fans posting an epic trick shot video while wearing their colors, an awkward college colors family photo and college colors displayed at the office.

Poke 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 in Glendale, Ariz., courtesy of the Collegiate Licensing Company and the College Football Playoff.

Winners for the first set of challenges will be announced via on College Colors Day, Friday, Sept. 4.
