Nicolet College Futurefest

video competition deadline extended

 

Nicolet College students now have an extra two weeks to create videos for the state Futurefest Ideas Competition which features a $5,000 first prize.

The new deadline to submit entries is Feb. 15.
In the videos students are encouraged to use their creativity to express their potential impact on the future.

A panel of judges will determine a Nicolet semifinalist who will win $300 and then compete statewide for one of three cash prizes: $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000. Prizes will be awarded in April. The short videos may include students' unique visions of the future at school, home, travel or play, and will be on display at www.wearefuturemakers.com.

Full details and entry guidelines are available at www.wearefuturemakers.com/futurefest.
The competition is designed to honor the creative spirit of students, the educators who mentor them, and the culture of originality thriving at technical college campuses across Wisconsin. Any Nicolet College student taking credit courses during the second semester can enter.

"This competition celebrates the unique talents of our students, of which we're very proud," said Nicolet College spokesperson Sandy Kinney. "This is an exciting opportunity to see our students' perspectives of the future."

The competition is sponsored by Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin Apprenticeship & Training Trust and the Foundations of Fox Valley Technical College and Blackhawk Technical College.

The Wisconsin Technical College System has 16 technical college districts throughout Wisconsin, which offer more than 300 programs awarding two-year associate degrees, one- and two-year technical diplomas and short-term technical diplomas. In addition, the System is the major provider of customized training and technical assistance to Wisconsin's business and industry community. More than half of all adults in Wisconsin have accessed the technical colleges for education and training in the last decade.
