The tenth annual Scripps Day at Ohio University will take place Tuesday, Oct. 13. This celebration of the partnership between the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Scripps College of Communication features a Scripps Expo where students share creative activity and collaborative projects, a plenary session and the naming of the Scripps Next Top Intern, which carries with it a $3,500 internship stipend.
“While Scripps Day at Ohio University is rooted in tradition, we use the event to continually explore how the partnership can benefit both the foundation and the college,” said Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth.
“A number of positives have come from this event over the years, ranging from jobs for our graduates to new and exciting initiatives for the college. I’m excited about this year’s Scripps Next Top Intern contest, as it will provide professional development to students who attend and, certainly, for the winner, who will be able to use the $3,500 stipend towards an internship experience.”
The event, which is open to all Scripps College of Communication students, features a selection of six student who will present and answer questions from a panel of judges during an afternoon event, open to the public. Winners in 2014 included MDIA students Lexi Gojdics and Eric Tiu and all interested MDIA students are encouraged to apply.
