By extending the life of a project outside the classroom in which it was submitted, students can gain new perspectives on their work, allowing them to edit and revise for a more professional audience. Students are also invited to submit multimedia projects they’ve already completed for classes, internships, or Student Life work. Because students often submit class projects they are particularly proud of to the contest, there is often little extra work needed by each student.
Participating in the contest will foster creative thinking and elevate a student’s involvement, but as with any competition, there are advantages to winning! Winners and runners-up alike will receive prizes, with the chance at one grand prize. For further information on the judging process, see the ‘Judging and Prizes’ tab.
