This is a great opportunity for first-year Ford School students to learn about potential internship opportunities. A group of celebrated judges will determine the pitch prize winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd Prize) of the Policy Pitch Competition.

The audience will also vote to determine an audience award winner.
