Shell game: Bookstore sponsoring egg-decorating contest Tuesday

The Campus Bookstore is looking for a few good eggs. It is offering a $100 UWindsor gift card for the best-coloured egg on campus. Judging of entries will begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in the CAW Student Centre Commons.

“Colour your egg using any medium: paint, dye, marker, glitter — whatever your imagination can conceive,” says marketing co-ordinator Martin Deck. “Our judges will pick their favourite.”

The store will even provide eggs and colouring supplies Tuesday, so everyone can give the tradition a try. The activity will run in conjunction with a Sidewalk Sale, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Commons area, offering markdowns on apparel and tech.

In addition, patrons will enjoy a 10 per cent discount on all general reading books, including those already on sale.

“We’re hoping to clear our inventory in advance of fiscal year-end,” Deck says.

The contest and the sale are open to all comers.
