The Student Innovation Awards competition is unique in that it requires students not only to have a great idea but also to use a number of communication skills to persuade others to fund that idea. Though not required, it is strongly encourage participants work under the supervision and with the support and guidance of a faculty mentor.

For assistance with writing your executive summary, you may seek support from the Writing Center in the Academic Advancement Center in COAS.

If you need help developing, filming, or editing your video, make an appointment with the Digital Studio.

Finalists will also be provided with a list of available communications faculty willing to assist in the development and perfection of the oral pitch.
