We over here at The Swag Section have been working very hard to bring you all of the best local, and global, content as possible; from the hottest in music right now, to the latest and greatest in the world of fashion. With this goal in mind, The Swag Section has teamed up with the guys at Maknation, a local culture and media organization currently based out of our hometown of Gainesville, Fl.
Maknation was founded about a year ago with a similar goal as The Swag Section’s in mind: to bring fresh ideas and ripe content to the youth around us. So far, they’ve had an impressive response with a competition known as “Mak Models”, in which individuals are chosen to represent their universities based on their style, demeanor, and other Mak characteristics. Three contestants are chosen from each school, and they are then voted on by their peers to advance to a Finalist stage, where only one model goes on to represent their University. In the end One (1) model will be chosen (female-only at this point) to become the reigning Mak Model, and enjoy all of the privileges therein. The competition has been focused at Florida Universities so far, but a broader scope is already in the works
FSU Mak Contestants:
Voting is simple: you can access the photos of the Mak contestants via Maknation’s Facebook Page, and simply cast your vote on their poll. It’s that easy. Schools covered so far include Florida Atlantic University, Florida State University, University of Miami, and the University of Florida, and the Maknation are constantly looking for more campuses to add to their ranks. Basically, you are being exposed to styles from all across the state, and given the opportunity to compare regional styles and trends. And since everyone’s Swag has a little bit of flair to it, we found this to be a great addition to our website.
We will giving you weekly updates about the latest Mak Competitions, and the status of featured Mak contestants. This week’s competition is at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Fl. For your convenience, we have provided the three models for your viewing pleasure above. Head over to the Maknation Facebook and vote for which model’s outfit you like the best. Voting ends tomorrow, so go vote now!
And while you’re at it, be sure to give their page a Like (and Like The Swag Section if you haven’t already!), and check out ALL of their Maknation contestants on their Tumblr page at MakModels.tumblr.com. Voting for the FSU competition ends tomorrow, so hurry up and cast your vote now!
Maknation will be announcing the winner of their Florida Mak Model very soon. They may be headed to your campus next, so keep your eyes peeled for the Maknation.
