Diversity Celebration Committee hosts slogan competition

Diversity Celebration Committee hosts slogan competition

The Diversity Celebration Marketing Committee is accepting slogan submissions to be featured in the marketing materials used to promote Appalachian State University’s Diversity Celebration through Feb. 14.

The Diversity Celebration Marketing Committee is comprised of about five members, including students, faculty and staff. The committee is responsible for the marketing and advertising of the event, said Lauren Fine, the

Student Government Association representative on the Diversity Celebration Marketing Committee.

“We will first look at all the submissions and choose the top five and then have the university community select the best slogan,” said Anthony Brumfield, the assistant director of multicultural student engagement.

Once the committee has decided on the top five of the slogans submitted, Appalachian students will receive an email with a link to the Diversity Celebration website where they will be able to vote for their favorite.

There have been more than 20 submissions so far, with more than a week to go for incoming slogan entries.

Last year, senior global studies major Chelsea Thrasher won the competition with the slogan, “United by similarities, celebrating differences.”

The Diversity Celebration “features a wide array of local and international music, eclectic dancing, delectable food and imaginative crafts,” according to celebration.appstate.edu.

The celebration is set for April 8 in Plemmons Student Union.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
