LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
The University of Louisville Athletic Department is launching its official Pinterest page and will hold a contest that will see more than $100 worth of Cardinal Authentic merchandise distributed as prizes.
The goal is for all Cardinal fans to show their pride by creating a special Louisville Cardinals board on Pinterest. Pins can include your favorite spot on campus, favorite Cardinal sports team, favorite tailgate recipes (with a Louisville flavor), favorite merchandise. The winner will be chosen based on creativity, Cardinal pride and uniqueness.
Winners potentially will appear on Louisville's social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.
Louie the Cardinal, the school's beloved mascot is also keeping fans connected through Pinterest this summer. Each Monday, Louie grabs his apron and heads to the kitchen looking for Cardinal recipes from food and drink lovers. Each week, a different "Cardinal-ized" category will be announced, searching for the best tailgate food, drink idea or appetizer. Fans can pin their U of L creation on a Cardinal Athletics board and Louie will choose the best ones.
