The Finals Fairy Social Media Contest

In case you missed him, the Finals Fairy is still bestowing gifts of encouragement, wellness and study tips, and treats! When you comment on any of the videos on social media with your favorite study spot, wellness tip, or word of encouragement to your peers during finals, you’ll magically be entered to win one of three awesome prizes, straight from The Finals Fairy himself. See all the details below.

The contest ends on Wednesday, May 17 at 11:59PM EST. Winners will be contacted the next day, and will have until Friday, May 26 at 5:00 PM EST to pick up or redeem your prize.

Contest Eligibility Requirements and Conditions

Participants must be current NYU Stern undergraduate students.

Your comment must contain a study location, wellness tip, or word of encouragement.

All comments must be in good taste and keeping within the spirit of the Finals Fairy to be informative, useful, and encouraging to classmates.

Comments must be in reply to an original post from @SternUC about finals to be eligible.

Video and/or promotional posts will be posted by @SternUC on multiple channels, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Multiple comments on one of these channels will not make you eligible for multiple entries. However, a comment each of these channels will increase your chances for winning. Comments can be the same across different channels.

Scenario 1: Leonard Stern comments on the Finals Fairy video on Facebook with his favorite study spot: the Century 21 Lounge. Later on, he comments – still on Facebook – that his favorite wellness tip is sitting as still as a statue and focusing on his breathing for a minute. Leonard is only entered once to win.

Scenario 2: Leonard replies to the Finals Fairy Facebook video with his favorite study spot. He sees a promotional post on Instagram, and comments there with his favorite wellness tip. Leonard is entered twice to win.

You must be following @SternUC on the channel of your entry to be eligible.

Winners will be contacted on the social media platform on which they submitted by Thursday, May 18  to verify their name and arrange their prizes.
