Cool Co-op Contest

Was your co-op or internship awesome?

ECS hosts an annual Cool Co-op Contest for students, where winners automatically advance to the statewide contest hosted by OCEA (Ohio Cooperative Education Association). If you have done a co-op or internship work term between Jan. 1, 2017 - Dec. 31, 2017 and loved it, consider applying! It's easy, and you can win prizes!

ECS will be selecting its favorite entries and awarding winners, one for each category (see below), with gift cards. As stated, those winners advance to the statewide OCEA contest where they will be competing for other prizes (last year it was a prize valued at $150). Winners at the state level will also receive recognition at the annual OCEA Conference Awards Dinner.

How to enter

Submit your online entry through the link located in the right sidebar

  • Select one of three categories.
    Was your co-op/internship cool because of
    1) the "Projects" you worked on,
    2) the "People" you worked with, or
    3) the "Perks" you received?
  • Write a one paragraph essay (300 words maximum) about why you had the best Project, People, or Perk at your co‑op/internship. Keep it short, but use examples when possible.
  • Include a photo, with caption, related to the experience.
