I was thrilled when I was first tasked with helping to create The New York Intern Project contest to help us find our next superstar summer intern. But, I had no idea we’d see more than 98,000 page views and 13,387 votes for 93 very impressive photo and video entries! And, as I write this blog post, entrants from colleges and universities all over North America are rallying votes on campus and using print and social media to get the word out about their participation. And, for those of us who work in the industry today, we know that those qualities easily extend to everyday life as a PR and social media pro. What better experience could we ask for?
Tonight, at 11:59 PM PST, the New York Intern Project will officially close its first voting round. On Monday, April 11, after a final sweep of our contest to ensure that all votes are properly counted, we’ll announce the top 6 entries with the most votes who will become our semi-finalists.
Check back here on Monday for the official results, but in the meantime, visit www.nyinternproject.com now to vote for your favorite entry! Share your favorite entries in the comments below!
