This year, UBurger is welcoming new college students to the Boston with its first FreshBurger contest, offering the chance to be crowned FreshBurger 2012.

One lucky FreshBurger winner will cop the crown as freshest face in the class of 2016 and win a year’s worth of fresh, famous UBurger fare, cooked fresh to order.  

Any member of the 2012 freshman class is eligible to participate. All potential FreshBurgers have to do is submit via email the reason why they should be UBurger’s FreshBurger 2012.

At the close of the nomination period, UBurger will select one lucky FreshBurger nominee to represent their school. College students and members of the public will then vote online for their favorite FreshBurger, and the student that tallies the most votes will win a free meal per week from UBurger for the rest of their freshman year.

To be eligible for the FreshBurger 2012 contest, nominees must provide proof of school enrollment, a tasteful headshot, and a description of why they have the right stuff to be named FreshBurger 2012.
