Sexual Assault Awareness Month Art and Written Word Contest

April 1, 2021

Cardinal Update News Newsletters RISE Student Affairs Undergrad Student Information

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to help our community reflect on and raise awareness of this critical issue, as well as show support to survivors everywhere by contributing to an Art and Written Word Contest. 

Submissions should be an original piece that addresses one (or several) of the following topics: 

  • Sexual assault 
  • Gender-based/dating violence
  • Consent
  • Social norming

Any media may be used including: poem, short story, essay, painting, drawing, sculpture, song, dance, skit, etc. 

Submissions must be appropriate and respectful of this serious issue. No piece of art is too minuscule. A committee will judge the works to determine a winner. Winners will receive a $10 gift card to use at Cardinal Coffee or the Market courtesy of Chartwells. Submissions will be displayed in the Hall of Fame Room. To submit a piece, please make arrangements to drop it off at the Office of R.I.S.E. (Vlazny 106). 

Entries are due Thursday, April 15, at 4 p.m.

Get more information on the contest and the judging criteria.
