The Vitae Yorkshire and North East Hub will be hosting a Public Engagement Competition. The Competition will be included as part of a Public Engagement Conference on the 8th May in York. The day will include high level keynote speakers and interactive workshops to help researchers gain a better understanding of how to communicate the key message of their research to the public.
The Competition will take the following form:

24 winners from the competition on the 8th May will get the opportunity to engage children and adults alike with their research in a truly public arena, the Sheffield Winter Gardens as part of the Sheffield Children’s festival on the 7th July 2012. They will also receive tailored public engagement training from a professional training group on one of the following dates:
University of Leeds: Tuesday 29 May 2012
University of Newcastle: Friday 1 June 2012
(Please note if you apply to the competition you will need to be available on one of the training dates above and also on the 7th July in case you are chosen to exhibit your work in Sheffield)
To take part in the competition you need to bring with you an A3 sized visual display (i.e. poster) plus a 200 word description of how you would engage the public in the Sheffield Winter Gardens if you were selected. The poster and description will be judged on the 8th May and the 24 winners announced on the same day.
