Women's History Month 2015

March is Women's History Month, and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies at NIU is now accepting submissions to this year's Women's History Month Poster Contest, as well as proposals for activities to be held during the month-long celebration. This year's theme will focus on women, gender, sexuality and incarceration issues.

We invite interested university departments, organizations, and individuals to join in the planning of activities, such as performances, concerts, films, visual displays, speaking engagements and panel discussions. Event proposals are due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 19, 2014.

The Women's History Month Poster Contest comes with a $150 prize for the winning student artist or photographer, sponsored by the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women. The final poster-calendar will include the student's artwork or photography. Each applicant must submit a completed application form and up to five images by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 19, 2014.
