Create a prezi proving why Queens College is the best. Maybe it’s the story of a current student or alumni that is changing the world, or a professor conducting groundbreaking research. Grab some images, record some video, add some text, and show the world why Queens College is the best.

The two winning prezi creators (one by popular vote and one by staff selection) will receive a 2014 spring break “dreamternship” in the Prezi San Francisco office, where they will have a chance to network and receive advice from tech industry insiders (flight and lodging included). For those entering as teams, one student must be designated as the “dreamternship” participant (only student team members are eligible for this opportunity).

The two colleges or universities with the winning prezis will receive free Prezi EDU PRO licenses for a duration of one year for their entire population of students, staff and faculty

The winning prezis shall be promoted throughout the Prezi Nation in mass media, social media, and other channels.

Steve Whalen, Director of Communications at Queens College is interested in your prezis. If you create a “Why Queens College is the Best”, please send it to swhalen(at)
