On February 22nd, 2018 the Student Success Project launched a new university wide competition to give students the chance to express what diversity means to them. The ‘Creative Project Competition’ was promoted during the Liberated Library Book Launch and poetry slam event, which celebrated and recognised the need for diversity in literature and the curriculum. For more information on the event, please click here. The competition was open to all students, who could enter a variety of submissions including; written essays, videography, photography or a physical artwork. Prizes on offer included Amazon vouchers as well as featuring on social media platforms and on the Student Success Project website.
On April 26th 2018, Paris Hyman was announced as the overall winner for the 2018 Creative Project Competition for her video submission, which you can view here. The judges had a very difficult choice to make as all the submissions were of such high quality, but the judges commended Paris on her unique creativity and artistic flair in answering the question of diversity. She was awarded a £50 amazon voucher from Mariann Rand Weaver - Pro Vice Chancellor (Education) and the Head of the Student Success Project.
