Something new this year during Cultural Diversity Week is a Creative Expressions Writing Contest. This is the perfect opportunity for all students who prefer to express themselves from the comfort of their computer screens.
“We noticed that the students were looking for creative outlets to talk about important topics like diversity,” said Laura Black, Student Life programmer.
In order to register for the contest, students are required to log onto MyConestoga and click on the CCR. They will be able to find more information here with regards to the event and also find the form to submit a creative expressions piece. Staff at Student Life are looking for a submission that describes or reflects the Respect campaign values but at the same time, shows the individual’s creativity. This means that students can submit anything from graphic art novels to poetry and short stories.
For more information, head to the Cultural Diversity Organization page on the CCR page of MyConestoga. The site also feature volunteering opportunities as well as upcoming events.
