Over the last few weeks, ASUP Senate (Associated Students of the University of Portland) has been running a photo contest. Clubs receiving funding from ASUP Senate were able to submit a photo of members participating in a event, meeting, or activity.
Once posted on ASUP's facebook wall, the club that could get the most likes for its photo would win $100 and the two clubs that received the second and third-most would receive $50 each for their Waldschmidt accounts.
The likes had been counted and KDUP placed 3rd, which means the station has received $50 to its Waldschmidt account.
Thanks for liking our photo and thanks for supporting our events and shows this year!
3rd Place KDUP 205 likes
