Chinese New Year Big Craft Competition!

Brought to you by the Dean of Students Office

Calling all students! We want you to join us for a Big Craft Competition this year for Lunar New Year. Celebrations will be a little different to normal this year which is why we're running a big craft competition. The only competition rule is that whatever craft you decide to make, it must be Lunar New Year themed. This could include anything from creating a huge drawing of a festive dragon that you display in your flat window, or it could be something as simple as an origami ox (to represent the Year of the Ox). Why not turn it into an activity with you flat mates to create something together?


Once you've created your craft, all you need to do to enter is share a photo with us. You can do this either by sending the photo to the Dean of Students' Instagram or you can send it to us via email at studentexperience@herts.ac.uk



Once the competition closes a winner will be picked. The winning entry will win a £50 pizza voucher for their flat, so you can have a pizza night with all your flat mates!



The competition will close on Friday 19th February, the eighth day of Lunar New Year, which is when people normally return to work. As eight is the luckiest number in China, most businesses like to reopen on day 8 of the holiday
