UOS held a contest from March 27 to April 3 to select phrases for the 100th anniversary lamppost banner. The contest was aimed at members of UOS, including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members. The posting period ended on May 11.
Kim Bong-sun, a member of the 100th anniversary celebration bureau, said that all lamppost banners are normally limited to the campus area. However, because of the historic and symbolic importance of the 100th anniversary, these banners were placed outside the campus, with the cooperation of Dongdaemun-gu office and the Seoul city government. The banners were also posted in an area between the campus front gate and Cheongnyang-ri Station.
Kim said that a total of 41 members of UOS entered the contest with 113 phrases, and the bureau finally chose 20 for display. Entrants whose ideas were selected received gift certificates worth 20,000 KRW. Those with more than one phrase selected received the prize for each idea.
