Christmas tree competition

The Christmas Tree Competition is back and we're happy to say it is taking place on campus this year! 

We have nine trees, which are dotted around campus, and we have been inviting students and staff to submit their teams to be allocated a tree to decorate. Teams could be as creative as they like and receive a £15 shopping voucher to use to buy decorations or materials to make their own. Students and staff now have the chance to vote for their favourite and the winning team will receive a £50 BID Leicester voucher.  

How to vote

Visit the trees until Friday 09 December, open 9.00am - 5.00pm weekdays.

All students and staff are invited to vote for your favourite tree. Please see below for how:

  • Pick up a Christmas Tree Trail card from Centenary Square, or Fielding Johnson Reception.
  • Using the information on the card, you will be able to find the decorated trees around Campus, which will have a sign to make it clear its part of this activity. Remember to vote fairly you need to see them all.
  • Once you've seen them all and decided who your vote goes to, go to the voting page to make your selection.
  • Don't forget to include your email address to be included in the prize draw for a chance to win a £10 BID Leicester voucher.
