The idea is to mime and do some simple Makaton/BSL signing along to a song. You can do this alone or with friends! Our judges will then decide on the winner based on your accuracy and enthusiasm. It costs £3 to enter per entry (not per person) and all money raised will go to our society charity, The Brainwave Centre. There will be prizes for first, second and third place.

Step 1: Choose a song! There are several songs on YouTube that already have Makaton signs that you can copy or you can work out signs to your own favourites using the BSL sign dictionary: http://www.signbsl.com/ (Remember: keep it simple!)
Step 2: Learn the signs! You can choose to sign a whole song or just a verse and/or chorus depending on how ambitious you're feeling.
Step 3: Upload or send us a video of you performing the song.
Step 4: Make a £3 donation to our chosen charity, The Brainwave Centre, via the Fundraising Page listed below.
Step 5: Wait to hear the winner!

Last entry by 12 noon on Tuesday 30th April. The winner will be announced on Sunday 5th May and can be collected in person if you're an Essex student or posted to you if you're out of area.
