Shovel Snowdown

Welcome to the 2021 Shovel Snowdown! We will once again be mailing vouchers for snow shovels to local students. All you have to do is watch the video below, take a quiz on the contents of the video, and fill out a short form with your information.

These vouchers are only redeemable at:

Joseph’s Hardware
2160 W. Drake Rd.
Downtown Ace Hardware
215 S. College Ave.

Once you click the button below, you will be taken to the quiz. The quiz will ask you information presented in the video, so please watch it before you navigate to the quiz. You must answer all the questions correctly in order to reveal the form. You may need to refresh the page if you select an incorrect answer. These vouchers will be sent by mail, so please make sure you put down your mailing address.

The Shovel SnowDown program is intended for students living off-campus in a detached dwelling with public sidewalk shoveling requirements.   Off-campus apartment complexes traditionally take care of shoveling public sidewalks. Students who live in one of the following apartment complexes or something similar and are not required to shovel their public sidewalk will not be receiving a voucher for a free shovel:

The Standard
Stadium Apartments
The District
Union on Plum, Elizabeth, and Alley
Ram’s Village
Campus Crossing at Rams Pointe
The Grove
State on Campus
The OutPost
The Cottages 
On-campus apartments
By clicking the ‘Take the Quiz’ button, you confirm that you are a current CSU student, and that you live somewhere that requires you to clear snow from public sidewalks. We will verify this prior to sending you a voucher, so please do not take the quiz or submit a form if you do not meet the above requirements. If you are not sure if you meet the requirements, please email Nancy Rhodes at
