Academic Society No-Shave November Contest
Voting is closed. Winner:
This year Wahl and Major Society student leaders suggested incorporating the event into the academic societies. Participation in this contest earns points towards the Society Cup. Each participant will receive 3 points for the society to which they belong. On Nov. 30th contestants will come together to take photos of their glorious facial hair to be posted on the society website for all to see. Furthermore, all students will be encouraged to vote for the beard of their choice. Each voter will also receive a point for their respective society.
Face must be completely shaven the morning of November 1
Participants must refrain from shaving or trimming their beard until December 1st - in order to look professional, being the student physicians we are, shaving one's neck will be permitted.
Participants will be allowed to customize whiskers the final day of the event in order to sway voters.
Participants will present themselves for photographs at the end of the month and voting will take place on this website
Prostate and Testicular Cancer Awareness
It is important to recognize that many organizations use this contest as a way to receive donations and raise awareness for specific causes, most revolving around prostate and testicular cancer. We are not doing this for our contest, but encourage participants and spectators to raise awareness and make donations on their own. The Movember Foundation runs a worldwide contest and takes donations to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG Foundation, among others.
Get pumped up!
Good luck, Sam Hund Wahl Society Student Leader
