October is here and we have already seen a ton of amazing looks on social media to inspire our costumes this year! To celebrate one of our favourite holidays, we will be having an Instagram contest and are officially open for submissions as of today.


All you have to do is share your Halloween costume, makeup look, themed nails or spooky hair with us using #JCITRICKORTREAT. We will post the top submissions the week leading up to Halloween, and award a grand prize for the most creative look! This contest is open to current JCI students and graduates.
