Why do you love the humanities? Let us know by entering the Shout Out for the Humanities contests!
Who: Current UIC undergraduate and graduate students are invited to participate as individuals or teams.
What: Design an original project that answers such questions as: Why is studying the humanities (literature, foreign languages and cultures, history, philosophy, art history) important to you? To society? How would you convince your parents, an employer, a politician, or others that there is value in learning the humanities?
How: Express why you consider the humanities to be valuable using any medium. Make a video, website, or other digital project; make a photo collage, comic strip, cartoon, infographic, or other visual art project; conduct an interview; write a song, short story, or essay. All submissions must be made online and in an electronic format.
Why: Because we need your help advocating for the humanities in higher education! And because there will be cash prizes for first, second, and third place winners. A panel of distinguished UIC faculty members will judge your submission based on the clarity, quality, and impact of your message.
