Air Jam is Thursday, October 9 at 9:00 p.m. in Emens Auditorium.  A typically sold out crowd will watch various student organizations dance and compete in the annual lip-sync competition!  First place trophies are given to each category winner: Greek, Independent, and Residence Hall. An overall winner and crowd favorite award will also be given. The 2014 Homecoming King, Queen, and their courts are crowned following the show!

Rules & Regulations:

The first 20 teams to turn in their information will be allowed to participate, and the next 5 will be alternate teams.  There is a $100 non-refundable entry fee for each team.  Alternate teams will not be reimbursed even if they do not have the chance to compete. Each team must have a minimum of 5 people and maximum of 20.

Songs are given on a first come, first served basis.  You will be contacted to let you know which of your choices of songs you will be permitted to use.  Please have alternate choices. Acts must be 2 ½ - 4 minutes long. Deductions will be made for times outside of this range.

  • Air Jam is a LIP SYNC competition and judges will be encouraged to look for this during the performance.
