Perfect Pitch - May 3, 2019
At Edgewood College, we are hosting a Pitch Competition as part of Edgewood Engaged 2019 – our annual Student Research and Creative Inquiry Symposium – which takes place on the Monroe Street campus May 1 – 3, 2019. This year, our theme is: Curiosity and Exploration
Pitch your idea, make a difference! A pitch competition offers an exciting forum for your innovative ideas to move from the planning stage to the real world. In the process, when you research an idea, you can learn what it takes for a compelling pitch by receiving feedback from professionals.
Cash Prizes ($500) will be awarded in the areas of Art, Business and Technology, Social Impact, and Sustainability. Professional adjudicators will assess pitches based upon preset criteria (For more information, please contact us using the form below).
March 1 – 15 – Prepare pitches, collaborate with mentors/partners, develop an idea.
March 15: Pitch must be submitted online.
April 1 - Selected students will be invited to participate in a pitch development workshop hosted by Leigh Maxwell, Associate Professor of Communication Studies.
