Leeds Met PR Student hopes stationery creation can send him to Rio

Steg the Stationerysauraus could send Mark to Rio

A Leeds Metropolitan University student could be enjoying the holiday of a lifetime in 2011, a trip for two to the Rio Carnival in Brazil, after entering a competition launched by Asda Stationery. Mark Mitchell, a final year Public Relations and Marketing student, is currently in first place with six votes after entering his creation “Steg the Stationerysauraus” in to The Asda Rio Carnival Competition.

Asda Stationery are encouraging students to create works of art using the Asda stationery range and then upload it to The Asda Rio Carnival Facebook page. The entry with the most ‘likes’ by the 3rd of November will win the dream holiday for two.

Mark said: “I wouldn’t say I was incredibly arty, but thought I would give it a shot. I’m surprised at the outcome as people seem to like what I have created, so it just shows if I can do it anyone can. I’m sure I will have to put my PR skills to use once more entries start to come in.

“I have always wanted to go to Brazil and to experience the Rio Carnival would be amazing.”

The competition is open to any student in full time education, the entry with the most Facebook likes by the 3rd of November will win a trip for two to the Rio Carnival in Brazil. For more information on how to enter please visit www.facebook.com/TheAsdaRioCarnivalCompetition
