E&D Competition of the Month: LGBT History Month
Posted: 3 February 2017 at 2:32 pm | Author: Alison German
This month’s prize competition topic is ‘LGBT History Month’ – enter and be in with a chance of winning a £20 amazon voucher!
LGBT History Month is a month long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history; including the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. LGBT History Month is also about raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT community. In the UK LGBT History Month is observed throughout the month of February.
In order to be in with a chance of winning a £20 amazon voucher, you simply need to submit an effort you have made to engage with and/or raise awareness of the topic LGBT History Month to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 24 February 2017.
What you choose to submit is open to your interpretation, meaning you can enter anything you feel is relevant. This could be anything from artwork and videos, to personal stories, blogs, fundraising efforts or poems. If you’re struggling to think of ideas, you could send us…
- Artwork – Art has the power to create positive social change. The ‘Get Over It!’ campaign, run by Stonewall since 2007, has gone a long way towards tackling homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying in the classroom through its popular slogans and effective use of posters across the UK. Perhaps you could create a poster of your own to raise awareness on a matter affecting the LGBT community?
- Personal stories – Do you have a story to tell about the impact that sexuality or gender has had in your life? Are there any misconceptions you think people might have about sexuality and gender? Sharing a personal story is an excellent way to break down stigma and open up discussion about a subject that is important to you.
- Blogs – Blogging is one of the most accessible ways to share your ideas with others, and there are endless possibilities when it comes to what you can write about. You could write about gender identity, coming out, discrimination, self-acceptance – and much more!
These are just a few ideas. Remember – we will consider whatever you choose to submit, provided it fits the theme!
This competition is open to all students and staff at The College of Animal Welfare/CAW Business School. Entries should be sent to email@example.com, or handed in to College, by Friday 24 February 2017.
