It is that time of year again, spooky season! Whether it is your favorite time of year or least favorite, there is something to do for everyone. Free treats and giveaways are always a nice surprise. This year, Shippensburg University’s student-run radio station, WSYC, is having its third annual week-long Halloween giveaway, “Too Spooky for Me.”
Each day, Shippensburg students can win giveaways by responding to Instagram posts, or by calling in to certain radio shows. The giveaway started Oct. 26 and ends Oct. 30.
Students can win a variety of gift cards including Amazon, Walmart, Target, Dunkin Donuts, Sheetz, the school’s bookstore and more. When it comes to the specific on-air giveaways, they are up to the DJ’s choice.
Morgan Barr, host of WSYC’s “Metal with MoBarr” on Thursdays said she normally does giveaways on her show by using a trivia question. Whoever is the first to text, call or tweet her the answer will win the prize.
For her show during “Too Spooky for Me,” Barr said she is going to create new promotional material to go along with the Halloween theme. She will also incorporate a “spooky” playlist and play Halloween-themed music.
Barr plans to announce the trivia question in the middle of her show. For this year’s giveaway, she will be handing out a Walmart gift card.
The event is a great practice round for the radio’s big prize giveaway in the spring, “Up All Night.”
Students can download the app on the Apple and Android app stores and stream WSYC anywhere, anytime.
