Homestay Photo Contest

Share your Homestay experience for a chance to win great prizes!

Students from more than 100 countries call Brock their home away from home. They come from all corners of the world and represent unique cultures and ways of life.

We want to celebrate the #BrockU community by showcasing our Homestay families. Photos can be as simple as students and families smiling and laughing together, everyday life (ie. family dinner or breakfast), family trips, or any fun experiences had participating in the Homestay program. Creativity is encouraged.

The top four (4) photos will be selected by a panel of judges, and then put to a popular vote with the total number of likes received determining the top two (2) photos, and ultimately the winners of the contest.

The top two photos will be awarded the following:

  • WAL-MART Gift Card, valued at $50
  • Brock Campus Store Gift Card, valued at $25

The contest entry deadline is 12 p.m. (noon) on April 30, 2020.
