Congrats, You’re In!

The “Congrats, You’re In!” Instagram contest is open to all first-year or transfer accepted students matriculating in fall 2023. The winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card and SUNY Plattsburgh merchandise.

How to Enter

To enter, post a photo of you and your acceptance packet on your Instagram page and tag @sunyplattsburgh. Your account must be public for us to see your photo. If you have a private account, DM us (1) a screenshot of your Instagram profile showing the post AND (2) the original photo. You can also email materials to [email protected] if your account is private.

Post only one photo — posting multiple photos will disqualify you from the contest. The photo must include you (the accepted student).

Terms & Conditions

Every accepted student who enters will be considered. By entering the contest, you agree to SUNY Plattsburgh reposting your photo on any of its social media channels and using it in any future marketing materials (print, digital, video, etc.).


The contest runs from Monday, Oct. 17, 2022 through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023. The winner will be selected by the Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing based on the quality of the photo and creativity. The winner will be notified via Instagram DM.
