Naming Contest!

For the 2010-2011 school year, we're unveiling a new certificate program for RAPPORT students. Through completing a set of commitments on one of two tracks (Peer Leader track or RAPPORT Only track), RAPPORT folks can develop their skills and knowledge in social justice education and receive a certificate recognizing their work.

We have a dry, boring, but official-sounding name that'll go well on resumes:

"RAPP Certified Social Justice Peer Educator"

We want a more exciting, enticing, and energizing name for daily use! That's where you (and RAPP goodie bag + $10 a UC Bookstore Gift Certificate) come in!

What we're looking for:

*Short and catchy is good! (which is why we're looking for something to say in daily use insted of "RAPP Certified Social Justice Peer Educator")

*Connecting somehow to the concepts of social justice and/or peer education is good!

*It can be an acronym - or not! (like how RAPP stands for Racial Awareness [Pilot] Program, or PAC for Programs and Activities Council)

*It can have the words/letters for RAPP or RAPPORT or Certificate - or not!

*Basically, we're looking for something new, catchy, and fun! It doesn't have to be like every other kind of program, but it can be if that's how it works out. The idea is for you to take it wherever you want to take it.

How to submit:
Email your idea(s) to Rebecca at or message her on Facebook by 5PM on Monday, July 19th. You can submit more than one idea in the contest.

The prize:
The winning entry will be selected by RAPP and SALD people. We may have the RAPP community play a role in it, too. More details on that will emerge later.
The winner will get a RAPP goodie bag full of RAPPtastic and SALD goodies - plus a $10 gift-card to the UC Bookstore!
