[ARCHIVED] Inaugural Paint the Aves to Take Place Next Week

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Twenty-five MSU students groups will be partnering with 25 downtown East Lansing businesses next week for the inaugural Paint the Aves competition during MSU Homecoming Week.

Community members can also vote for their favorite window painting on e-Town Hall,, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 30 at noon through Friday, Oct. 2 at noon.

Winning student groups will receive downtown East Lansing gift cards in the amount of $300 for 1st Place, $150 for 2nd Place and $100 for 3rd Place. A special People’s Choice prize will also be awarded to the team that garners the most votes on e-Town Hall. The winners will be announced at 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2 in Ann Street Plaza. Members of the media and public are welcome to attend.

The MSU Homecoming Committee and the East Lansing Downtown Management Board are co-hosting this fun, new MSU Homecoming activity. The paintings will remain on the windows through Sunday, Oct. 4. Community members are encouraged to come downtown and check them out throughout MSU Homecoming Week.
