The Contest

Take the Blue Crew with You this summer! New students visiting the UTSA Libraries during their Roadrunner Roundup Student Orientation will receive one of our Blue Crew guys (pictured right). They are also are available at the information desks at the John Peace and Downtown libraries.

  • Snap a creative picture of him at home, at UTSA, or during your summer travels
  • Post the photo to the UTSA Libraries’ Facebook page (you will have to do this from a desktop computer - this option isn't available from Facebook's mobile app) or to Instagram (hashtag #bluecrew)
  • You may enter as many photos as you wish, but only one winning photo will be selected


>> Prize — iPad Mini


>> Deadline — all submissions due at 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26


The Blue Crew — our nickname for our friendly, blue-shirted library staff — are always here for you. Whether you are studying on-campus or at home, the Blue Crew can help you with class assignments, paper research, or finding just about any information you need. Our slogan is Ask Us Anything, and we mean it!


An impartial library staff committee will choose the winning photo. Entries will be judged on their creativity and the best depiction of our Blue Crew guy integrating himself into your life as a future UTSA student. The winner will be selected and announced on the UTSA Libraries’ Facebook page sometime the week of Aug. 26. 


  • Anyone may post a photo, but only enrolled UTSA students are eligible to win the grand prize
  • Photo entries must be posted to UTSA Libraries’ Facebook page or Instagram by 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26
  • Submitting a photo indicates you consent to your photo being reproduced and used for promotional and educational purposes
