Q-Step Poster Competition

2015 Q-Step Sociology Poster Competition (closed)

In 2015, the Queen’s Q-Step Centre invited submissions for the ‘Queen’s Q-Step Sociologist of the Year’ poster competition. The competition has now ended but please check again soon for details about future competitions and awards.

Information for applicants

This competition allows you to apply the skills you have gained throughout your study of sociology using the Young Life and Times Survey (YLT). The YLT is an annual survey which asks 16 year olds in Northern Ireland about a wide range of topics such as family, identity, finance, health, education, politics and community.

First place prize of £200 and second place prize of £100

Deadline for Submissions: EXTENDED UNTIL 22 MAY 2015

What do we want you to do?

We want you to create a poster to illustrate the experiences of young people, drawing on the YLT results available online. The poster should describe the responses reported by young people in the survey and offer a brief discussion of the significance of these results. Your supporting discussion should draw on material covered in your sociology course so far.
