Want an Amazon Gift Card? Submit a Video and WIN!

Videos Due: Friday, September 18th, 2020

Campus Cooks is ecstatic to roll out our brand new TikTok account, and we want you to be a part of it! We are excited to introduce our first ever TikTok video competition. We are looking for creative, out-of-the box, funny videos based around the concept of serving the best food on college campuses during quarantine. The top three videos will be showcased on our TikTok account and multiple gift card prizes will be handed out! See below for details.

Who Can Enter?

All current Campus Cooks employees who are working on campus are invited to enter our TikTok Video Contest. The contest is open to individual employees, or groups working 6 feet apart and following coronavirus rules.


Videos will be judged by the Marketing staff on the following categories:

  • Showcasing delicious food
  • Originality/Creativity
  •  Fun
  • Humor
  • Their positive nature
  • Vertically filmed
  •  High quality phone recording preferred, but not required
  • Wear masks, gloves, and promote physical distancing
  • No profanity, inappropriate language, gestures, or clothing (keep the video school appropriate). No copyrighted photos or brand logos other than Campus Cooks should be included.


  • 3 winners for the best videos (See “Judging”): $50 gift card to Amazon
  • 3 additional random submitters: $20 gift card to Amazon

Employees can submit multiple videos but are only eligible to win one prize. The more high-quality videos you upload, the greater chance to win!
