                      Point Recognition Awards
                              Engineering Award
The Engineering Award is given to the living group pair who exhibits
engineering excellence and technical ingenuity in their house decoration.
OSU alumni and faculty involved in Engineering professions or the
College of Engineering will judge the Engineering Award.

The Engineering Award will be judged by 5 different judges. These
judges will come from varying sources which may include, but are not
restricted to: at least one professor from OSU Mechanical Engineering,
Aerospace Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Architecture, or a
professor in another field who has proof of knowledge of advanced
engineering concepts, at least one professional engineering judge from the
Stillwater Community, at least one professional engineering judge from
OSU’s Alumni Base, one OSU/Stillwater-independent professional
engineering judge. These scores will be tabulated after dropping both the
low and high score for each house to eliminate single judge bias.

Talking to and showing around Engineering Judges is permitted ONLY by
one representative from the Fraternity/Sorority Pair. Violations of this
policy will result in penalties. The Engineering Judges will begin judging
at 3pm on the Friday of Walkaround. All moving parts must be
completed and working at this time; however, pomping on non-moving
parts and screen-hanging is still permitted during this time.


This award is usually presented during the Homecoming pre-game festivities.
There is no entry form required for this award.

The members of the OSU Greek community are members of the organizations who are
members of the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council
and Multicultural Greek Council of Oklahoma State University. A pair is typically defined
as one male group and one female group that each have a total membership over 45. If
living groups have 45 or less in total membership, they have the option of combining with a
same gender living group that also falls under 45 in total membership. This group may pair
with an opposite gender group over 45 or two opposite gender groups that each have under
45 in total membership. The winner will be determined by total points accrued through
contest entries, places in competition, and participation points. Also, a main factor in the
judging will be sportsmanlike conduct and the general attitude of the competition groups. Violations
of any Homecoming regulations will be taken into consideration. The OSU President and
CEO will present the Sweepstakes trophy. The Sweepstakes award will be announced
during the Homecoming football game.

In order to be competitive, Sweepstakes entrants must participate in the House
Decoration or Competitive Float competition, Football Frenzy, Harvest Carnival, Signs,
Philanthropy and Spirit Rally.

    This monetary limit includes money spent on new materials as well as donations of new
    materials. Also, reused materials are at 10% of current day cost. Living groups must
    turn in a “before-Homecoming” budget estimate of what they think they will spend on



                                                                                             11
   steel, pomps, chicken wire, glue, motors, lifts, and generators. This budget form can be
   found on pages 18 and 19 of this packet. This budget form shall be due at the Second
   Greek Life Meeting along with the House Decoration Application on Sunday, April 19,
   2010. Please remember that this budget is an ESTIMATE of what you will spend.

   12.Living groups must also keep a COMPUTER ledger (THAT WILL BE PROVIDED)
   of their financial records including donated (10% of cost) and reused materials (10% of
   cost). Any violation of spending limits will be reviewed and acted upon by the
   Homecoming Executive Committee. Overspending the budget ceilings will result in a
   5% loss of points towards overall house dec for the entry. The Homecoming Steering
   Committee does not wish to take away from any house decoration; the Committee
   only hopes to promote the overall Homecoming Spirit by insuring that all
   participants follow established guidelines for fairness. Ledgers, receipts, and all other
   financial records will be requested at any time and should be constantly updated. A
   print out of the computerized ledger will be picked up once per week starting a month
   before Homecoming and will be checked every night the week of Homecoming. A final
   printed ledger and copies of receipts will be picked up on all-night-pomp, Thursday,
   October 22, 2010 so Homecoming Executives can evaluate ledgers, receipts, and
   comparisons to budgets before placing are announced at the Football Game. The
   computer ledger should include all expenses incurred during the living group’s
   Homecoming preparation. Each chair will be responsible for bringing an updated
   ledger and a copy of all receipts to each of the living group meetings to turn in to the
   Homecoming Executive Team, failure to do so will result in a one (1) point sweepstakes
   deduction from total score per occurrence.

12. Have at least one Homecoming chair readily available during the time specified at a
    future date. Failure to produce the ledger within 3 minutes of arrival will result in a 1
    point deduction of points towards Sweepstakes.

13. The House Decoration shall not exceed a volume total of 29,000 cubic feet. However,
    no part shall exceed 20 feet in height. This means that groups are allowed to design a
    unique decoration to the yard it is built in. Geometric figures can be designed and will
    be considered as long as it fits inside of the measured volume i.e. spheres triangles,
    squares. The decoration must also be continuous, in that, a portion of the decoration
    cannot be on one side of the lawn and the other portion on the other half. The
    Decoration will be measured periodically throughout the building process and must
    stay with the cubic feet requirements of 29,000 cubic feet.
    **** A House Decoration shall not exceed 20 feet in height at any point of the house
    decoration, no matter how the landscape of the yard lays. If any Decoration exceeds 20
    feet at any part, pairs will have to resize decoration to stay within guidelines!

14. The House Decoration should not exceed 8 moving parts. If a pairing should do so it
    will result in a 10% deduction on House Decoration.

                                                                                                12
15. All final Homecoming entries must be approved by the Homecoming Executive Steering
    Committee.

16. We play Nebraska Cornhuskers. Their colors are red and white.

17. There will be a drawing for the order of submission of ideas for House Decorations at the 2nd
    living group meeting on March 23 , 2010. This drawing will be also used as a schedule for the
    safety meeting in the fall. All entry forms for House Dec. must be turned in at the Alumni Center
    by 4:30 on April 16, 2010, with the detailed sketches required on the House Dec. Entry sheet and
    the House Dec. Budget Form.

18. A representative must attend a mandatory safety and general information meeting
    which will be announced at a later date. Absence could result in disqualification of
    the house decoration entry and forfeiture of Sweepstakes fee at the discretion of the
    Homecoming Executive Committee.

19. No alcohol is allowed on campus or chapter property! Any violation of the alcohol rule
    during house decoration construction or the Walkaround may result in disqualification
    of the entry at the discretion of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs/or referral to
    the University Conduct Office. Alcohol use on Chapter property during Homecoming is
    also a safety violation.

20. Only active OSU students that are active members in the chapter of this university will
    be allowed to work on the house decoration. The first violation will result in the loss of
    one point, second is two points, and third is five points, after this with each violation the
    penalty will increase by five points each time.

21. OSU Physical Plant and the OSU Alumni Association will provide large dumpsters
    located around the house decorations. Any and all house decoration materials allowed
    by the city dump will be put in the dumpsters. When a dumpster is completely full, call
    744-5410, and the trash receptacle will be emptied, but do not over fill.

22. Pairings will be allowed one week, until 5:00 the following Friday, for cleanup of all
    scrap including: chicken wire, pomp screens, metal piping, etc. If not all trash is clean
    off yard by one week after Homecoming Houses could be subject to warnings or
    monetary fines by the City of Stillwater. Also please have all metal that the House
    intends to keep taken to storage within one week. It is not the intention of the
    Homecoming Executive Team to create needless stress for the Homecoming Pairings;
    therefore, these guidelines must be followed to avoid fines.

21. All campus buildings, campus water features, university logos, and mascots can be
    used in all house decorations. The items listed above cannot be added at a later date if
    the change conflicts with another living group’s sketch. Keep in mind that other houses
    may also use these features in their house decs.


                                                                                                   13
22. All other cases of repeat objects in house decorations will be dealt with by the executive
    committee on an individual basis with preference typically given to the first house
    decoration submitted with the object in question.


23. We are asking that each living group submits a colored detailed sketch of the front
    view of their house decorations by September 3, 2010. This sketch is to be used in the
    publication that will be distributed at walkaround. Publication Sketches must be 8 ½ by
    11 inches (height and width are interchangeable)
    ** any additions submitted on this sketch that are not already approved will not be
    allowed, this sketch is NOT reviewed for additions by the Homecoming Executive.

24. A separate feature list must be provided. The house dec features WILL NOT be taken
    from the sketch.

25. There is an initial feature limit of 25 features. You may provide a longer list. Once all
    pairings initial lists have been approved, we will return to drawing order and approve
    the remaining items in groups of 25. Please list your items in order of importance to
    your dec.

26. You must notify the executive committee of any design phase taking place off of the
    living group premises.

27. If pairs wish to use any other visual decoration in addition to tissue pomps, (such as,
    but not limited to bricks or sand) it will be at the discretion of the Homecoming
    Executive Committee and must be submitted with the creativity aspect at the April 16
    Greek Life Homecoming Meeting

28. Each pairing that participates in Walkaround will receive a subsidy. This amount varies
    with the number of groups who participate, but the subsidy is currently $700-$750 per
    living group or $1,500 per pair.

29. Dumpsters will be provided for the clean-up of the house decs. Dumpsters are dumped
    twice a day and usually, two groups share a dumpster. Please work together to
    “organize” this so that the dumpster use can be maximized.

30. The executive committee has the final say on decisions regarding Homecoming 2010.

31. Safety inspections will continue throughout clean up.

   Publication. The colored sketch is due by September 3, 2010 at the Alumni Association by
   4:30pm

5. The use of non-pomped material is at the discretion of the Homecoming Executive Team.

6. All NANO pomping is prohibited. A 10% deduction will occur

7. Construction will begin only after a building permit has been obtained from the Physical Plant
   Office of Environmental Safety.




                                                                                                    22
8. A monetary limit of $2,200 per living group has been established for parade floats. This
   monetary limit includes money spent on new materials as well as donations of new
   materials. Also, reused materials are at 10% of current day cost. Living groups must
   turn in a “before-Homecoming” budget estimate of what they think they will spend on
   steel, pomps, chicken wire, glue, motors, lifts, and generators. This budget form can be
   found on pages 29 and 30 of this packet. This budget form shall be due along with the
   Parade Float Application on Friday, April 16, 2010. Please remember that this budget
   is an ESTIMATE of what you will spend.

9. Living groups must also keep a COMPUTER ledger (THAT WILL BE PROVIDED) of
   their financial records including donated (10% of cost) and reused materials (10% of
   cost). Any violation of spending limits will be reviewed and acted upon by the
   Homecoming Executive Committee. Overspending the budget ceilings will result in a
   loss of points for the entry. The Homecoming Steering Committee does not wish to
   take away from any parade float; the Committee only hopes to promote the overall
   Homecoming Spirit by insuring that all participants follow established guidelines for
   fairness. Ledgers, receipts, and all other financial records will be requested at any time
   and should be constantly updated. A print out of the computerized ledger will be
   picked up once per week starting a month before Homecoming and will be checked
   every night the week of Homecoming. A final printed ledger and copies of receipts will
   be picked up on all-night-pomp, Thursday, October 21, 2010 so Homecoming Executives
   can evaluate ledgers, receipts, and comparisons to budgets before placings are
   announced at the Football Game. The computer ledger should include all expenses
   incurred during the living group’s Homecoming preparation. Each chair will be
   responsible for bringing an updated ledger and a copy of all receipts to each of the
   living group meetings to turn in to the Homecoming Executive Team, failure to do so
   will result in a one (1) point deduction from total score per occurrence.

10. Judging will take place during the parade.

11. All aspects must be built on the building site specified by the living groups.

12. Floats must arrive and be set up between 5:00-6:00 a.m., Saturday, October 23, 2010. The parade
    will begin at 9:00 a.m. (subject to change in the event of an early TV football game time).
