ARE you an air guitar virtuoso? Or perhaps you’re an ace at Nintendo tennis?
Well, wacky students from Huddersfield University have set a series of challenges to find the Alternative Student of the Year (ASOY).
Instead of showing off their academic skills, students will be asked to prove their worth at air guitar, Nintendo Wii Tennis, drumming, Djing, bar-tending and dancing.
The first three contests take place at Huddersfield Student Union on March 11 (8pm-11pm).
The other three challenges will be hosted at a Huddersfield nightclub (to be confirmed) later the same night.
A winner from each of the events will then battle for the title and prizes on Nintendo Wii Boxing.
The madcap challenges were devised by French business students Guillaume Besnier, Marc Blanchard, Arnaud De Bouard and Czech business student Tom Culik.
Guillaume, 21, said: “The first idea was to use the talents of the university so we started with dancing but we decided to come up with something funny.”
Huddersfield University marketing tutor Nadio Granata added: “Last year we had a very successful bar tending competition so it’s leading on from that.”
The contest is open to students aged 18 or over from all universities and colleges.
A share of proceeds from the competition will go to teenage cancer charity the Laura Crane Trust.
ASOY is looking for sponsors.
