CHABSS Voices is a campaign to amplify voices and ideas supporting the values and ideals of the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral & Social Sciences.
The goal is to help engage and inspire our CHABSS community to come together to emphasize anti-racism, inclusive excellence, social justice, social responsibility, ethics, and global culture.
Every month from September 2020 to May 2021 (excluding December), the CHABSS Voices creative works monthly contest will have a different theme. Creative works entries must further CHABSS and CSUSM’s values (stated above) and offer CHABSS students, faculty and staff, multiple pathways to explore ideas, ideals, visions, and principles.
Apr. 26, 5 pm
May 24, 5 pm
Submissions can be any creative work, such as posters/graphic art, poetry, spoken word, photography, mixed media, short story (no more than 1,000 words), and video (no longer than four minutes). Max upload size is 25MB. Max poster size is 24 x 36 inches.
The contest is open to CHABSS-affiliated students as well as all CSUSM faculty/staff and will have two judged categories:
1. Current students studying CHABSS majors, minors, or currently enrolled in at least
one CHABSS course.
2. CSUSM Faculty and Staff.
The month’s winning entries will be highlighted amongst all entries which will be published on CHABSS webpage and across CHABSS social media channels.
The author retains the copyright to the submitted work and agrees to publication on CHABSS' website, CHABSS Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as well as possible publication on other campus websites and local community news organizations.
Winners may be asked to provide a photo to appear with their entries.
There will be two winning entries in each of the two categories:
