There are first, second and third place winners receiving varying amounts of scholarships, ranging from $500 - $1,600.

The first-place winners become part of UCO's royalty and represent the international student population at various functions.

The cost is $5 for the community and free for students, faculty and staff with valid ID.

Persons who, because of a special need or condition, would like to request accommodation should contact the International House as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours before the event, so that appropriate arrangement can be made.
