What is the BAME Person of the Month Competition?

The competition is a way of celebrating members of the BAME community who are doing inspirational things in the sectors of Law, Criminology, Government and Sociology.

These people can be international (not UK based) and can either be living or dead. The winner will be picked by LCG Rep, VP Wellbeing & Diversity, the BAME officer, International student’s officer and the Student Voice team!



What do you have to do?

  • To enter this competition, you have to write anywhere from 200-300 words on someone you think is inspirational – on a word doc.
  • The text itself can be either factual or emotive, but it must say why this BAME person is inspirational to you and others.
  • Use a high-resolution image if possible!
  • Then it can be emailed to the LCG School Rep (currently ) or the student voice team!
  • We will format it for the social media channels but let us know if you have any specific requests such as the colour of slides, etc.
  • Dates will be sent out via email.
