What could your college store do with $1,000?

With a College Store of 2015 Investment Grant, you could highlight an area of your store with new color, create new signage, support a student-designed t-shirt contest, or promote products in new and innovative ways? One investment grant will be offered to a college store from every state and regional college store association. What's the catch? You have to involve students, make a change that supports a College Store of 2015 recommendation, and film the process from start to finish - the NACS Foundation will even purchase a flip video camera for you to do it! Your video will be shared at a CAMEX 2011 education session, in the 2015 Theater at CAMEX, and on the 2015 website and YouTube channel. Interested?
