  • Banners should follow this year’s Homecoming theme of “There's No Place Like Homecoming!
  • The entry fee is $15.
  • Organization name, Ball State, and Homecoming should appear on banners to be considered for the overall winner prize.
  • There is no limit to resources for the banner except the use of glitter. All banners with glitter will be disqualified and not displayed. Use your imagination, but please stick to the theme. All banners must be cloth (sheets or shower curtains are recommended for easy display).

Bethel Avenue, by Monday, September 30, before 4:00 p.m. The banner needs to be completely dry when delivered.
