“Decades” has been selected as the theme for this year’s Winter Weekend celebration, which gets under way at Wilkes University Feb. 21.

As part of the festivities, the student body will enter teams into a two-day competition resulting in a winner.

The event will take place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Feb. 21 and from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Feb. 22. Friday will include several competitions, including the banner and skit competitions along with a scavenger hunt.

Teams will start their Saturday morning with a surprise competition, activities in UCOM during the afternoon and top the event off with a trivia competition.

Each team needs to present a decade, and follow through with picking up team registration forms in the Student Government office on the first floor of the Henry Student Center. Information regarding due dates for deposits, T-shirt designs, team decades, members and captains are located on the registration form.

Student Government Vice President Taylor Moyer is in charge of coordinating and facilitating the event, along with forming a committee to assist her.
