ACB Contest: Group Name Contest


The collegiate a cappella world is known for its celebration of puns, obscure references, musical in-jokes, celebrations of school pride and more. We’re interested in seeing what you can come up with for the most clever, funniest, most creative, or otherwise best original name for a collegiate a cappella group.

This group name should not, as far as you can find, be in use by a current group, have been used by a now-defunct group, or be planned for use by a group that is taking shape now. In other words, be creative and come up with something legitimately new. Please Google your idea or search our group directory before sending it in, as a preliminary check for whether it has been used before.

Send all entries through our Contact Page. For the subject line, please enter: “Group Name Contest.” Please include your full name with your entry.

You’re welcome to enter as many group names as you like, but please enter them in as few messages as possible so as to not overwhelm our inbox.

All entries must be received by Friday, March 12, 2009. Entries will be judged base upon creativity, quality and good humor, at the sole discretion of ACB management. The winner and top runners up will be announced on The A Cappella Blog on Thursday, March 18.

The winner of the contest will receive five ACB Save the Music wristbands and will have $5 donated to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation in their name.
