A Creative Christmas Contest for Scintillating albeit Stressed Students looking for a Dash of Devious Distraction!

We are very excited over here at Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity to be hosting our second Creative Christmas Contest.  And since it is year 2, I figured we should have 2 prize packs. Questions? Email

For Prize Pack #1: The Traditional Dear Santa Mad Lib  The one that makes me laugh the most will win the 'Split my Sides' prize pack.
