You’ve spent the last 2-4 years wearing sweats to class and living off dry shampoo. Now it’s time to get out there and go for that dream job and you’re starting to realize that your wardrobe needs a complete makeover from sweats to suits. But…shopping is expensive and you don’t really have money to spare, so what do you do?

Why not enter to win a $1,000 wardrobe makeover from IGNITE?

All you need to do is submit an essay to us (maximum 500 words) by March 25th explaining why you need a brand-new wardrobe and you could win:

  • 1st Place Prize: $1,000 Cadillac Fairview gift card plus a professional portfolio and certificate for a resume and interview prep session with a Career Advisor provided by Humber Career Centre.
  • 2nd Place Prize: $250 Cadillac Fairview gift card
  • 3rd Place Prize: $100 Cadillac Fairview gift card


Judging Criteria

Each entry will be scored out of 25 points based on the following:

  • Quality of writing (5 points)
  • Creativity (10 points)
  • Need (10 points)

The judging panel will consist of IGNITE President and an IGNITE VP.

Entrants must be full-time Humber or Guelph-Humber students to qualify. Only one submission allowed per student. 1-2 members of IGNITE Communications Team and IGNITE President will accompany the student on the shopping spree and document the experience.

Winners will be contacted by email on Friday, March 29th. Winners’ name and likeness will be shared on IGNITE website and social media.
