Blue and gold inspired baking contest to kick off UWin Day celebrations

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, the University of Windsor will celebrate the third annual UWin Day, the unofficial birthday of UWin Proud, the University’s spirit program. To kick off the celebration, students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to test their skills in the kitchen and make a blue and gold inspired treat at home in the first-ever Great UWindsor Bake Off.

“In lieu of cake on campus, we thought it would be fun to see what our campus community could come up with from home to celebrate,” says Sarah Racinsky, communications assistant in the Office of Student Experience.

Those who wish to enter the contest must submit a picture of their sweet treat before Oct. 6 to the UWin Proud website:

The top submissions will be put to a vote on the Student Experience Instagram account Oct. 7, UWin Day, to see who takes the cake, with the winning student and staff or faculty member each receiving a virtual baking class for themselves and a guest with McCall's Baking.
