UL System President and CEO Jim Henderson announced a contest asking students to write his 10,000th tweet. The winner will receive a $500 scholarship to a UL System university. Henderson, an avid fan of the social media platform, set up the contest to draw attention to the University of Louisiana System and its nine universities.
“The contest is a fun way to engage our student body and the entire University of Louisiana System family,” Henderson said.
Henderson announced the contest on twitter with a tongue-and-cheek video calling for entries. The contest, with limited rules, only requires the tweet be about the System or one of its nine universities. Henderson is judging the contest and the winner will be announced as his 10,000th tweet. To submit an entry, tweet @DRJBHenderson using #JH10K.
Henderson had about 9,970 tweets when he announced the contest.
