Policy Pitch Competition
Returning Ford School Master's and BA students completing summer internship experiences will have the opportunity to reflect on their internship experience and celebrate the start of the upcoming school year.
Presenters will deliver pitches highlighting their internship organization, policy interest areas, policy impact and engagement, skills gained and takeaways from their internship as they move forward with their careers.
A celebrity panel of judges will determine a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize.
A reception with food and refreshments and an opportunity to meet judges and presenters will follow the competition.
