Help us Beat the Ducks!
OSU vs. UO 2021 Advocacy Challenge
We love a good rivalry, especially when it is for a good cause – and we know you will, too.
For the first time ever, we’re challenging our Oregon State University legislative advocates to compete with the University of Oregon legislative advocates to see who can make the most noise in Salem as we join forces to urge the state legislature to make more investments in public universities, financial aid and support for student basic needs.
Get loud and help us secure state funding for higher education. Stable state investments in higher education keep college affordable for students and drive research and innovation that fuels economic development and jobs. You don’t need to be in politics or know who your representatives are; you don’t need to be a registered voter (though we’d like you to!); you don’t need to live in Oregon to advocate. What’s essential is a passion for Oregon State, a desire for all students to succeed and a belief that strong universities are good for Oregon.
Join OSU alumni and advocates in the Beaver Caucus – OSU’s legislative advocacy partner – in a challenge to see who is louder – for the good of us all!
Everyone who participates will be entered to win a legislative advocacy swag pack, including a Beaver Caucus hoodie, hat, flag and more. It’s the perfect way to continue making your voice heard.
How does it work? Take one (or several!) of the actions below. For every action you take, OSU will earn a point. The more actions you take, the more points OSU earns, so we can BEAT the DUCKS!
You can participate in the challenge by acting on any of the opportunities above. Each action counts as “one advocacy point.” If you contact your legislator on behalf of OSU and sign up for an Advocacy Day – that’s two points! If you tweet your legislator (and @thebeavercaucus) six times during the challenge – that’s six points. At the end of the challenge, we will tally up all of our advocacy activity and see who has the loudest advocates in Salem. Will it be the Beavers? Let’s not let the Ducks win!
