Making Herstory Contest

Making Herstory Contest Poster

The Makerspace, in partnership with the Women's Resource Center, invites Swarthmore College students to make a handmade tribute to a woman-identifying or gender non-conforming figure from history. This can take form in a portrait, diorama, object, costume, or other creation. Makerspace resources may be used by students on campus, and students living off campus are invited to use found materials and craft supplies from home. Up to 5 images or videos under 10 MB are permitted per submission. First, Second, Third places and an Honorable Mention will be selected by our guest Juror, Tiffany Thompson, Associate Director of Gender and Sexuality Initiatives, and Program Manager for the Women's Resource Center.

First Place: $100 Amazon Gift Card

Second Place: $50 Amazon Gift Card
