| RVU Social Justice Champion Contest


The RVU Social Justice Contest

In 2021, the Marketing Department hosted a contest to promote the many great causes that our students and employees were involved in. We are excited to announce that we are holding the contest again this year—but with even more cash prizes! We are calling for nominations of RVUers who are advancing the cause of social justice in some way. This can be in one of many areas:

  • Poverty and homelessness
  • Gender equality
  • Race equality and anti-racism
  • Discrimination and prejudice
  • Disability rights
  • Unemployment and job training
  • Human rights and protections
  • LGBTQ+ rights and equality
  • And many more

Nominate an RVUer who you think is doing amazing work in the name of social justice and they could win an incredible prize!
