Was your internship or co-op this past year awesome????

ECS and OCEA (Ohio Cooperative Education Association) are once again hosting the Ohio Cool Co-op Contest. If you have done an internship or co-op work term between Jan. 1, 2014-Dec. 31, 2014, consider applying! It's easy, and you can win prizes!

LAST YEAR, OSU Engineering students took home first place in 2 of the 3 categories!


ECS will be selecting its favorite entries and awarding winners with Barnes & Noble gift cards. OCEA typically awards awesome prizes for winners like iPods, GPS devices, and more! By submitting an entry, you will be in the running to win prizes for both competitions.

What to include in submission:
--Complete the short Student Profile Page.

--Select one focus area. Was your co-op cool because of 1) the "Projects" you worked on or 2) the "People" you worked with or 3) the "Perks" you received?

--Write 1 paragraph (300 words max.) about why you had the best Project, Perk, or worked with the best People at your co-op. Keep it short, but use examples when possible.

--Title your paragraph.

--Include AND caption a photo related to the experience.

--Include the title of your entry as the email subject line

Deadline to have submissions in to ECS is Sunday, March 29. Send your materials to

The winners in the OSU contest will then enter in the OCEA contest.

Please contact ECS if you have additional questions!
