Online Art Exhibition


Challenges

The Waterline Summit 2020 – Project Tik Tok:

This project provides an opportunity for students above the age of 13 to get creative and utilise the social media platform, Tik Tok, to show their sustainability tips, tricks and techniques. Marketing Humber are looking for students to use their creativity and knowledge of climate change and sustainable lifestyles, to produce either one video or a mini series of videos on the Tik Tok app.

Ideas for the content of the videos are not limited, but may include tips for saving the planet, sustainability hacks, ‘how-to’ tutorials and the creation of artwork. Marketing Humber are keen to see and share the videos that show that students have knowledge of environmental issues and an understanding of how to reduce their carbon footprint.

They ask that students utilise the hashtag #TheWaterline on your Tik Tok videos to allow other students taking part to seek inspiration and view the videos on the app.

They also welcome submissions in ordinary video format so that students who are not able or do not wish to make use of the Tik Tok app can still get involved.

Send your videos to school by tagging @tbahull on Twitter or by emailing your videos to marketing@theboulevardacademy.com. We will send the top ten Tik Toks/videos to Marketing Humber who will distribute on their social media. When sending in your submission please include your name!

Please see their Twitter account for inspiration – https://twitter.com/marketinghumber

Shine are also offering ‘An Introduction to Higher Education’ which will launch on Tuesday 14th April 2020. This online project will involve interactive activities specifically designed for Year 7 to Year 11 pupils to explore their aspirations and support their journey towards higher education.

Every Tuesday, the webpage will be updated with new interactive and engaging content, each covering a different topic from ‘what is higher education study?’ through to ‘a day in the life of a university student’. There are opportunities for pupils to complete tasks online, ask questions and win fantastic prizes such as Apple Airpods and Amazon Vouchers.
