Green Carpet Contest Returns Saturday

Arkansas Tech University fans will be able to show their Tech pride as part of Saturday’s tailgating festivities. Beginning at 3 p.m., Tech fans will be able to pose on the green carpet in their best green and gold attire.  Arkansas Tech will provide additional green and gold accessories for those wishing to enhance their outfit. Photos from the green carpet will be divided into several categories and placed on the Arkansas Tech Facebook page on Monday. The photo in each category with the most likes at the end of the week will win a $50 gift card to the Arkansas Tech Bookstore. The green carpet contest is just one event taking place as part of Family Day at Arkansas Tech.  Read more about Family Day festivities. For more about the green carpet, email Carrie Phillips at
