Students are asked to create a video, any way they liked, using what ever approach they wished, with the simple guidance that each 3-5 minute recorded presentation should cover:
a. What did you do? Tell us about your project
b. What did you learn?
c. Why are you excited about a career in the power sector?
We hope you find the recorded student videos inspiring - now share some inspiration in return!
Summit participants are able to vote in the People's Choice Awards for best student presentation (video).
You get to make 1 vote for your 1st, 2nd and 3rd rated student presentations - base your selection on the video that most connects with and inspires you.
Formal judging considers quality, creativity, and level to which the video engages the audience (and alignment to the scope of what we asked students to do).
