Queen's Baton Relay: Nominate a Batonbearer

Do you know someone who has taken on a big issue and changed the game? You could nominate a University of Birmingham student, graduate 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.

The University has 20 nominated places for students, alumni and staff to be a Batonbearer at various locations across England.

Nominations are now open to students, graduates and staff 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. The deadline for nominations is 14 February. Good luck
