iMOVE 2020 Undergraduate Student Industry Program awards
Like many things this year, what is one of our event highlights of the year, showcasing the video work of our 2020 intake of Undergraduate Student Industry Program participants, shifted to being held instead online today, on Zoom.
This program pairs teams of students with an industry partner. During the year in addition to working on their projects (and their regular studies!), the students also underwent communications and social media training, and to wrap up the year each team was tasked with making a short video presentation about their project. At the event those videos were judged and voted on by a panel of iMOVE staff, university staff, and the students attending the event. Prizes were awarded to Best Video, and two Runners-up. An additional award was voted by participants at the online awards event.
‘It has certainly been a challenging year, and you all deserve congratulations on your work this year,’ said iMOVE’s Programs Coordinator, Renae Leeson.
We’re already talking to companies and universities for the 2021 Undergraduate Student Industry Program, and would also like to encourage interested parties to get in touch via the program’s Enquiry Form.
