Cal Poly Universities Seek Creative Design Ideas for 2005 Rose Float


Cal Poly Universities Seek Creative Design Ideas for 2005 Rose Float
“Celebrate Family” is the theme for the 2005 Tournament of Roses Parade.

Imagine your Tournament of Roses float design being viewed by millions at the 2005 parade in Pasadena, plus winning two tickets to the Rose Bowl or $250 in cash.

That is exactly what the Cal Poly Universities (Pomona and San Luis Obispo) are offering to the winner of a Rose Float concept contest for their 2005 entry. Anyone may submit a design concept based on next year?s general parade theme, ?Celebrate Family.?

Entries should portray an idea for a float rather than a finished design. Submissions may be black & white sketches, color drawings or even a written description. Make sure the contestant?s name, address and phone number are placed in a sealed envelope attached to the back of the entry. Drawings submitted with the name visible may be disqualified. There are no size restrictions for entries, but contestants are advised that drawings approximately 11? x 17? or larger tend to present ideas more clearly than smaller ones. Actual float sizes are about 55? x 18? x 17?4?, but can be extended for special designs.

All entries will be judged by the merit of the idea rather than the quality of the drawing or description.

Deadline to submit entries is Friday, Feb. 6, at noon.

There is no limit to how many times you may enter. Entries may be mailed to: Cal Poly Pomona, Rose Float Committee, Building 26, Room 131, ?Float Concept Contest,? 3801 West Temple Ave., Pomona, CA 91768. Hand deliver entries to Janetta McDowell in the Office of Student Life, Building 26, Room 121; or Ron Simons, University Advancement, Building 98, fifth floor.
