Finally, participants must include the hashtag #FISIPUNAIR #PENGMASBEMFISIP #GerakanUNAIRLove #FISIPTRASHCHALLENGE and tag the photo with @bemfisipunair. The photos should be uploaded no longer than March 29, 2019.
There were two categories of photos contested, individual and groups photos consists 2-4 people. The best photo will depend on the amount of rubbish in the photo, creativity and number of likes.
“This was a new project from Ministry of Social Affairs, BEM FISIP itself. God willing, if the enthusiasm of UNAIR academics are massive then we will continue this project every year.” said Amelia Sri Hardiani, who was in charge of the program.
Meanwhile Minister of Community Relations BEM FISIP UNAIR Manuel Agri revealed that FISIP Trash Challenge is not only for FISIP students, but it is open to all UNAIR academics.
“Here, I invite all faculties to implement the program with the aim of advancing UNAIR’s name and protecting the environment,” he said.
