Queen’s Declared Heavyweight Winners of TD Pump It Up Contest

October 13, 2011


KINGSTON, ON – The Alma Mater Society (AMS) is proud to announce that Queen’s University students have been declared the Heavyweight Winners in the TD Pump It Up Contest. In recognition, Queen’s students will be given exclusive access to a concert featuring B.O.B., Mother Mother, and Team Canada DJs.

The contest is now in its third year, this being the second time Queen’s University has won. The contest was determined by percent participation of the student body and stands as a testament to the spirit of the Queen’s community.

“It’s always amazing to see all the members of our community at Queen’s coming together to achieve a single goal,” said Stephen Pariser, AMS Campus Activities Commissioner. “This kind of spirit will always be worth more to the campus than any concert. That being said, we’re very excited for the show and look forward to some spectacular performances!”

Details on the date, venue and ticketing for the concert will be made available in the coming weeks. The AMS, who led the campus effort to win Pump It Up, will also be heavily involved in the logistical planning of the event and are committed to ensuring all Queen’s students have equal opportunities to attend the event.
