Christmas tree competition

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

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

How to take part 

If you would like to take part and decorate a tree for the competition email by 5pm Thursday 24 November with the following details:

  • Team/tree name. Try to be creative, as we love a Christmas pun, but they must not be rude or offensive.
  • Name and email address of the main contact in the team.
  • Names of other team members. Teams can have a maximum of five people.

If we have more than nine teams apply, a random draw will take place on Thursday 24 November. The chosen teams will be contacted with their tree location, and to arrange collection of their shopping voucher. Trees must be decorated by 9.00am Tuesday 29 November.

Voting will take place from Tuesday 29 November – Friday 09 December.

Announcing the winner

The winning team will be announced on Monday 12 December. The winning team will then be contacted via email to arrange to collect their prizes.
