Yesterday, at SOLTRA’s facilities in La Virgen del Camino, took place the presentation of the second edition of the Inclusive Economy Short Story Contest. School of Economics University of León and SOLTRA joined forces to organize this inspiring contest, which aims to provide a platform for anyone related to the University Community who enjoys both creating and reading stories, in order to showcase their talent and disseminate their creations.

The event was attended by Mario Diaz, Vice-Deand Luis Buendía, Secretary , María Diez Revilla, Financial and HR Director of SOLTRA, and José Antonio Idoeta, General Director of SOLTRA who highlighted the importance of inclusion and equal opportunities in the economic sphere, and emphasized the commitment of the University of León in the formation of values in its students.

After the success of the first edition of the contest, which counted with the participation of more than 60 stories of great literary quality, this second edition is presented as a sample of the continuous commitment of the University of León with inclusion. Mario Díaz said: “The university should not only impart knowledge, but also train our students in a series of values. SOLTRA is a national and international reference in Inclusion, and that is one of the values we want to transmit to our students.

The contest is open to participation from different groups, including members of the university community, people related to the faculty and SOLTRA employees. The stories should address aspects of inclusive economy, exploring the topic from a social, solidarity, responsible and sustainable perspective, among other possibilities.

Presentation of stories requires that each participant send an original story in Spanish, with a length of less than 1,000 words, via e-mail to ulefeetf@unileon.es. To promote anonymity, it is requested that the stories are sent from an email address that does not end in @unileon.es or @soltra.org. It is important to state “INCLUSIVE ECONOMY STORY TELLING CONTEST” in the subject line.

The deadline for story submissions is October 13, 2023 at 2:00 p.m., giving participants plenty of time to let their imaginations run wild and create powerful stories.

In addition, prizes have been announced for the winners of the contest. First prize will be 1,000 Euros, second prize will be 500 Euros, third prize will be 300 Euros, fourth prize will be 100 Euros and fifth prize will also be 100 Euros.

After the presentation of the contest, the vice dean and the secretary of the faculty toured SOLTRA’s facilities, learning first-hand about the activities aimed at generating employment for people with disabilities. They also had the opportunity to visit the Doña Cinia Residence and Occupational Center, which belongs to the SOLTRA Foundation, which provides support to people with mental illness.

With this contest and the visit to SOLTRA, both entities demonstrate their joint commitment to the inclusive economy and their desire to promote talent and creativity in an environment that values equal opportunities. We look forward to the stories that will emerge from this inspiring literary contest!
