Enter the Show Your Maverick Pride photo contest

Big things are happening in Arlington! The latest was the February 1 opening of the University of Texas at Arlington's College Park Center, a 7,000 seat events arena in the heart of Arlington. This was just one of a zillion examples of how UT Arlington is all grown up, now with over 33,000 students and well over 100,000 Alumni who live right here in the Metroplex.

That's a lot of UT Arlington pride! In fact, Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck and the City of Arlington declared February 1, 2012 UT ARLINGTON DAY.

But you don't have to be an alumnus to feel pride in your hometown University. Want to celebrate UT Arlington Day? Want to show off your spirit? Want to win $250? Then enter the Show Your Maverick Pride photo contest!

All you have to do is dress yourself, your neighbors, your kids, your pets, your house, your place of business, your car, or anything else in your best blue, orange and white Maverick gear, take a picture, then email us the photo. Three winners will be chosen and will receive $250 each!



  1. Deck out in blue, white and orange. The more creative, the better!
  2. Take a photo of your awesomeness.
  3. Email your photo to between February 1 and February 10 at midnight. Be sure to include your name and your phone number in the email.
  4. Winners will be chosen by a spirited panel of UT Arlington supporters. Winners will be announced at the UT Arlington Homecoming game at 7pm on February 11. You do not need to be present to win (but why would you want to miss out on the public adoration?)
  5. Check out all of the Maverick pride in the picture below... we want you to top that!
