The Second Annual Internship Poster Competition took place on October 20. Eight student finalists who completed internships during summer 2016 were selected to compete based on the posters they submitted as part of the internship course. Four CARS Industry Advisory Board members served as judges. Finalists gave a three minute elevator speech about their internship experiences, followed by a question and answer session in front of their posters. Finalists were judged on communication as well as creativity. Three prizes worth approximately $250 each were awarded to the following competitors:
- Amanda Hacker (Vera Wang), Best in Oral Communication
- Jessica Papier (Belk), Best in Visual Communication
- Aralys Castillo (Simply Southern), Best Overall Internship Experience
Presentations were followed by a networking lunch. The event was sponsored by a Human Environmental Sciences Foundation grant.
