Fairtrade Fortnight six word story competition

19th January 2016

To mark Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 (29 February-13 March), the EAUC Fair Trade Community of Practice have launched a competition to see who can come up with the best six word stories about fair trade. Ernest Hemingway is thought to have written 'For sale: baby shoes, never worn', demonstrating how a poignant message can be expressed in only a few words.

Member institutions are invited to encourage their students and staff to share their stories via Twitter, using the hashtag #sixwordfairtradestory and tweeting @TheEAUC. A prize of a fairtrade box of chocolates will be awarded to the winning story, and favourite entries will be shared on the EAUC's website. The deadline is 13 March (end of Fairtrade Fortnight).

"Work starts 9... years old. HELP!" is the winning #sixwordfairtradestory. Read some of the other excellent entries here. Well done @FROZY_STYERS for the winning suggestion!
