Our ‘Student Voice’ essay competition is back for a fabulous 5th year to raise awareness of rare diseases among the doctors and researchers of the future. And we need your help to make it the biggest yet!

The competition is launching on Monday 1st October and we would love it if you could help us spread the word by:

  • Encouraging any students you know to take part in the competition. The competition is open to any undergraduate or masters students in any subject.
  • Sharing our posts about the competition on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, tagging any of your local universities.
  • Printing our poster (seen on the right) and asking your local universities and hospitals to pin it up.
  • Volunteering on our direct mail campaign, if you have an hour or two to spare.

The 2018 competition webpage will be live on Monday 1st October for students to find this year’s three questions, the entry form, the rules and regulations, and the patient group pairing form. As in previous years, there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs, including journal publication, conference tickets and cash awards.

Every share, re-Tweet, poster and email will make a big difference to the impact the competition has. If you would like to help on the direct mail campaign or you have any questions about the above, please email [email protected].
