Prize Presentation Opportunities

Throughout the FYAE Welcome Expo, prizes are given away through trivia contests. Generally, this generates a large crowd around the emcee and is an ideal opportunity to have a large number of students around your table. By donating giveaways and prizes (i.e. tickets/passes, gift cards, products), you can greatly increase the amount of traffic and exposure for your company. If you would like to give away any prizes during the event please send us a message at welcomeexpo@ucf.edu.
