To celebrate World Social Work Day 2017 and to contribute to the Global Agenda of Social Work and Social development, Social Work Education: The International Journal is delighted to announce an international competition for social work students. We invite entries from groups of or individual social work/social care/social welfare students from across the globes who are involved in practical, advocacy and/or campaigning projects with their local communities or in support of vulnerable groups. These projects should promote social justice, challenge stereotypes and make an impact on the lives of both the people that they seek to support, and on students’ understanding of themselves and of the role of social work in the 21st century. Entries should report and/or promote these projects, and make reference to the part played by social work/social care students.
Entries should be original, and presented in a format which will be accessible to as many people as possible, and so have the potential to achieve the greatest possible reach and impact. For example, we wish to encourage submissions in the form of blogs, podcasts, videos etc. as well as more traditional articles, reports or posters. The closing date for the submission of entries is 15 January 2017.
Please see the attachments for more information and the entry form. There are cash prizes for the top submissions. For any questions, please contact Helen Scholar at firstname.lastname@example.org
