The Ducks Variety Show is a brand-new student engagement program launching winter term 2021. We want to keep you—our Ducks—engaged and entertained, and provide opportunities for you to be part of campus, no matter where you may be right now.
Each weekly episode will be a mashup of various segments and air Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. PST, on the EMU YouTube Channel. Much like a true variety show, we want you to participate! And did we mention that there are prizes? You got it, each week we will be giving away two $50 Duck Store gift cards!
Each week will feature exciting segments where you can participate—Tell Me Something Good, Ten Second Talents, Duck Challenge, and trivia. We will also present professional entertainment from around the world.
Tell Me Something Good
As Ducks, we believe it is important to stay focused on the good things that happen in life. For our upcoming episodes, we want to feature your positive moments, the good things that happened to you or someone else, or anything that just simply brought a little bit of joy to your day. Look for your Tell Me Something Good moment on one of our upcoming episodes. These can be written, include photos, and you can also submit a short video.
Each week the Duck is challenging you to do a random activity that can be done from no matter where you may be. The Duck will introduce a new challenge each week during the episode, and the following week will feature students doing the Duck Challenge. To participate in the Duck Challenges, you will submit a short video of yourself doing the Duck Challenge for that week. Each week one person will win a $50 gift card! Your video might just be featured during one of our episodes.
Ten Second Talent
What can you do in 10 seconds? This segment will feature everything from amazing, odd, and completely wild talents. We know our Ducks are a talented flock, so get creative and submit your Ten Second Talent to be featured on one of our upcoming episodes.
Are you a trivia expert? Do you know random facts and like to win prizes? Each week we will have new questions that will be announced during each episode. The first person each week to submit all 10 correct answers will win a $50 Duck Store gift card!
Weekly Performances and Entertainment
We’ve hired top talent acts from around the world and each week will feature a 30-minute performance created specifically for you, our Ducks! We have acrobatics, aerial arts, danger acts, illusionists, contortionists, dance groups, and so much more! Tune in each week to see who we will be featuring. All episodes will be available after they air on the EMU YouTube Channel.
