1. TAKE PART in the Back to School #FairChocolate Photo Contest!
Only five days left to participate in the Back to School Photo Contest – participating campaigns will enter to win a Mega-Chocolate-Gift-Pack!
When you find Fair Trade chocolate on campus, take a photo holding the green check mark sign (example below), post, and celebrate! When you find chocolate that isn’t Fair Trade, hold up the sign that has a big red “X”, take a photo and then post to social media.

2. Join us for Fair Trade Month this October!
Fair Trade Month is a fantastic way for the whole community to come together in support of Fair Trade. Each Fair Trade Campaign chooses a day, week or the entire month of October to share the Fair Trade message with local organizations, clubs, classrooms and community leaders.
Our “Share the Fair” program is all about educating your community through one-on-one meetings with community leaders, presentations to organizations, workplaces, or classes, Fair Trade focused assemblies, and more.
