This December 2014, the Guerrieri University Center (GUC) sponsored the 11th Annual Tournament of Trees. This year’s theme was “Christmas Traditions: What Does Christmas Mean to You?” This year, 25 organizations participated in the event, which is the greatest number of participants thus far. With such a high number of participants, GUC staff were able to deliver the decorated Christmas trees to a variety of charities in Salisbury, including Christian Shelter, Women Supporting Women. The Student Military and Veterans Association received first-place honors and was awarded $100 and a plaque, Art Club received second place and a $50 prize and SUTV received third place and a $25 prize. Congratulations to all of our winners!
Each year organizations are given the opportunity to decorate a 3-foot, pre-lit tree, which is then judged based on originality and creativity. The decorated trees were displayed in the Fireside Lounge for a week, and then personally delivered by GUC staff to the multiple charity recipients. The holiday event involves fun-spirited competition among various registered student organizations, Living-Learning Communities and residence halls. Following the competition, all of the decorated trees were donated to local charities.
