This year the Arts Undergraduate Society of UBC Vancouver is excited to have George Stroumboulopoulos speak at the Arts Last Lecture 2012.

The Arts Last Lecture is an annual event in which a speaker is invited to deliver a "Last Lecture" to the graduating class in the Faculty of Arts.

This event allows graduating students the opportunity to attend a last lecture with their peers, as well as celebrate the end of their undergraduate studies. This event hopes to inspire and empower students with the hope that their education at UBC has prepared them to be agents of positive change in Vancouver, Canada and the world.

This event is also open to the general public, and we welcome you to UBC!

Tickets start at $10. Get your tickets here:

~The hastag:

~ The following twitter "handles": @Strombo; @ubcAUS; (& @dolphinsdancer)

Entries missing any of this information will either not be found/seen, and therefore not counted and/or disqualified from contest entry.

4. (Sorta..) I recommend you follow ME - @dolphinsdancer on Twitter as well.
~ This won't count as a contest entry (too hard to track those & tally for contest entry in a short time..& many of you are following already.

~ But, I will need to be able to DM/contact the winner in a timely manner.. And it could be fun..if you like music, hockey/Habs for sure! (and sometimes Canucks & Flames), Strombo (of course), motorcycles, health, wellness, fitness, Star Wars, etc.. I post on all that stuff.. and more on a somewhat random & regular basis.

(NO comments on this Strombo Show Chat blog entry, etc, are required, but I do appreciate it.. so you can still comment if you really want to.. ;)

And you may want to follow @Strombo, if you aren't already.

"The Fine Print":

~ I will be randomly drawing the winner from the eligible entries over that weekend, after the contest close & in conjunction with the @ubcAUS staff.

~ Time required to figure that out will be based on # of entries!

~ Again, make sure you are following ME - @dolphinsdancer as I will notify the winner first via Twitter DM with instructions on who to contact at @ubcAUS to claim your tickets!

By entering the contest you confirm that you have read and understood the rules above.

You also can not enter under different multiple Twitter accounts (that you manage &/or control - for the purposes of gaining additional contest entries). Yep. We had to include that.
