The University of New Mexico Alumni Association has announced the winners of this year's annual Campus Decorating Contest, which were a part of its 87th Annual Homecoming festivities.

The top-six finishers, as determined by a People's Choice vote during the Alumni Association's annual faculty/staff luncheon, included:

1. School of Engineering
2. Psychology Department
3. College of Pharmacy
4. Dean of Students Office
5. Accessibility Resource Center
6. University Communication & Marketing

In this year's contest, 30 participating departments decorated a specially designed letter "U" poster incorporating the Homecoming theme, "It all begins with U." Contestants were judged on the best use of the theme, creativity, quality of decorations, enthusiasm, and interaction and involvement with the UNM community.

Each participating department will receive a commemorative 2011 Homecoming poster, while the top finishers will be awarded various prizes as determined by the Alumni Association.
