Surface Pro 7 tablet computer

You could win a Surface Pro 7 by playing #VillageConnect: Have you discovered your Village yet? Your Village at De Anza is a place to meet friends, join fun activities and find resources that are relevant to your major and related subjects. This month, you can enter a drawing for a new Surface Pro 7 tablet computer by taking part in the #VillageConnect Gratitude Giveaway – but you must be enrolled in a Village Canvas site to enter. If you haven’t joined a Village yet, you can complete the short Village Selection form to join one now. You'll receive a Canvas invitation that you can accept to join the online scavenger hunt!

Every student who’s in a Village can click the “Play #VillageConnect” banner in Canvas to enter the drawing. One student in each Village will win a new Surface Pro 7 tablet computer with keyboard cover. Don’t delay! #VillageConnect ends Nov. 30. Got questions? Visit deanza.edu/villages or send an email to villages@deanza.edu
