Costume Contest will take place on Lightson Street. Check out this map!
- Thanksgiving Theme (1 or 2 people)
- Non-Thanksgiving Theme (1 or 2 people)
- Team Competition (3+ people)
Judging will take place immediately at 7am on Lightson Street. This year we will be implementing a new system for judging. We have created some criteria just to give you a sense of what we are looking for! There will be four categories in which each contestant will be scored; originality, materials used/complexity of design, how memorable the costume is and the overall presentation. Judges will include representatives from Virgin America, The San Jose Mercury News and the Costume Contest chairperson.
Be creative, gather your family and friends and join the fun of this year’s Costume Contest!
Prizes, Prizes, Prizes!
Virgin America has donated awesome prizes to be awarded to the most creative costumes. The winners of the Holiday Theme and Non-Holiday theme costume contest will win two Roundtrip Main Cabin passes good for domestic travel anywhere Virgin America flies in the U.S*.
And, team costume competitors, we didn’t forget about you! The Mercury News is offering a great new addition to our team prizes this year, tickets to a 49ers game. Winners of the team competition will win 2 tickets to the December 9th game against the Miami Dolphins and 4 tickets to the December 30th game against the Arizona Cardinals. Not to worry about parking, they are also throwing in three parking passes! That’s not it, Virgin America is also offering the team winners 20% off their next flight on Virgin America- so you can continue to travel in style!
