Last chance to nominate a Batonbearer for Birmingham 2022

Nominate your Batonbearer now!

There's still time to nominate a University of Birmingham graduate, student or member of staff to be a Batonbearer for the Birmingham 2022 Queen's Baton Relay.

The Queen's Baton Relay is an epic journey across the Commonwealth, visiting all 72 nations and territories. The Baton contains a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the Commonwealth, and is carried by thousands of Batonbearers during its journey.

The Baton will return to England in summer 2022, when 2,022 inspiring individuals will have the chance to take on the special, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of carrying the Baton as it travels across England ahead of the Birmingham 2022 opening ceremony.

If you know a Birmingham graduate, student or member of staff who has taken on a big issue and changed the game, they could represent the University as one of 20 nominated Batonbearers at various locations across England.

Nominations are now open to staff, students and graduates to nominate those based in England who have taken on a challenge or issue that has had a positive impact on the University or wider community.

Nominate your Batonbearer now!

Full guidance on the nomination process, along with the form, can be found on the University website. Nominations will close on 14 February. Good luck!
