Last week, the archives hosted a caption contest via their Facebook page. The competition called for Concordia students, alumni, and fans to channel their inner "Cobber comedian" and caption a photograph uploaded by the Archives. Given a new photo each day, contestants were able to post their caption(s) as comments, hoping to get the most 'likes' in order to win.
Who won the contest you ask? Drum roll please...
Jay Desart, a Concordia College alumnus! With a total of nine likes for his caption, Jay (pictured right) was declared the winner of the Caption Contest. Congratulations Jay!
A 1986 graduate, Jay participated in many activities throughout his time at Concordia including Homecoming, Cabaret, and was even a contestant in Mr. Concordia!
"I had a lot of fun during my 4 years at Concordia and I often look back on those days with a great deal of happiness," Jay said.
On why he chose to participate in the contest he added, "the Caption Contest seemed like a great way to recapture some of that fun. It brought back a lot of good memories."
On behalf of the Concordia Archives, we would like to thank everyone for their participation in the Caption Contest. We certainly learned that there are witty Cobbers out there! Check out Jay's winning caption below!
