Valentine’s Contest 2023: Best ‘Meet-Cute’ Story

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are asking couples to submit their “meet cute” story (how they first met before they started a romantic relationship). Please fill out the form telling us your “meet cute” and submit a photo of you and your partner that is OK for us to publish. We will select the best three stories and readers will have the chance to vote for their favorite one. The winner will receive a prize of flowers and chocolate! Only NIU students, faculty and staff can enter submissions.

Submissions open Jan. 31 and close at 5 p.m. Feb. 6. We will then post the top three submissions (selected by editor vote), which readers can vote on starting Feb. 7 and ending at 5 p.m. Feb. 9. The winner will be announced Friday, Feb. 10.
