Oberlin, Ohio-based National Association of College Stores (NACS) will sponsor its second-annual National Student Day.
On Oct. 4, college stores throughout the United States and Canada will host an array of in-store events to celebrate and promote social responsibility. These events will consist of giveaways, parties, contests and more.
So far, more than 1,500 college stores have registered to participate. They include institutionally owned stores and those run for institutions of higher education by Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, Follett Higher Education Group and Nebraska Book Co.
Additionally, NACS is sponsoring a nationwide contest that will reward students who demonstrate their volunteerism. Beginning Aug. 15, students can submit their story or video of social responsibility here.
The students’ peers will judge submitted stories. The three most popular submissions will win scholarships and seven random submissions will win iPads.
