Virtual Festival de Cascarones | At Home Cascarone Smash Contest Entry


Current and incoming students at Texas A&M University-San Antonio will have a chance to win a tuition-free semester for submitting the best at-home video of a cascarone smash. This adds a virtual element to the traditional Festival De Cascarones event on campus, which annually marks the end of San Antonio’s Fiesta.

The Golden Egg contest – sponsored by A&M-San Antonio and open to current and future students – is open for submissions through Sunday at noon. 

President Matson will announce the winners in a Facebook Live event from campus Sunday, April 26, on the University’s Facebook page. 

The contest winner will receive a tuition fee waiver for one free semester* (up to 15 credit hours) at A&M-San Antonio. The second-place finisher will win a Fiesta prize pack and two VIP tickets to the Festival De Cascarones at November’s rescheduled date, and the third-place finisher will receive a Jaguar swag pack.

*The 1st prize winner will receive a tuition fee waiver for one free semester (up to 15 credit hours) at Texas A&M University–San Antonio. The tuition fee waiver will be eligible for use in the Fall 2020 semester only and will be applied to the student account after all financial aid is awarded. All admissions requirements must be met and a valid FAFSA/TAFSA must be on file. Current and future students are eligible to win, however, the prize is not transferable to another person. The winner must be on Facebook Live for the announcement on Sunday, April 26 at 6 pm.

  • You must be a current student with A&M-SA for the spring 2020 semester or an incoming student for fall 2020
