The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media and digital. View this season's finalists!

From the 7th Annual Shorty Awards BN Student presented by Barnes & Noble College

Social media has created an entirely new dimension to being a college student. The social web is a global quad for students to meet each other and learn about other universities near and far. Students can take their school pride global by using platforms like Twitter, Snapchat, Vine, Instagram and many others to show the world why they are proud to be a college student. They can also use it to create their own content and personal brand, showcasing their talents and skills.

The #BNStudent award, presented by Barnes & Noble College, will be awarded to the most social college student who most effectively uses social media to foster relationships with other students and build their personal brand.

In order to be eligible for this Shorty Award, students must be enrolled in a 2 or 4 year institution with a Barnes & Noble College bookstore.

If you’re an educational brand looking for recognition for your use of social media enter the Best in Education Shorty Award.
