Join us at our signature event –– the 11th Leadership and Innovation Showcase –– where undergraduate and graduate student teams will present innovative solutions to business and social challenges across a variety of disciplines, including entrepreneurship, operations and supply chain management, business analytics and marketing.

Student projects range from creating a new product, such as an eco-friendly and economical cleansing device for menstrual cups, to improving a new item request process or providing a comprehensive analysis of future user interaction with personal banking. Learn more about the best student projects in a recent story.

About the Leadership and Innovation Showcase

The Leadership and Innovation Showcase provides students in Poole College’s practicum and other project-based courses the opportunity to present their projects to a team of judges and the general public and compete for scholarship prizes. It also acknowledges the many companies who provide projects that the students work on throughout the semester, as well as the industry and other professional mentors who work with the project teams.

Visitors from the campus community and the general public will see the depth and range of think and do applied by Poole College students in the course of their personal and professional development.

See the 2018 Showcase projects and winners.

Showcase Awards

A team of external and internal judges will evaluate the student projects and team presentations prior to the public viewing hours. The top three teams will be recognized at an awards ceremony that concludes the event.

Guests are also invited to cast their votes for the People’s Choice award while viewing the student exhibits and talking with team members about their projects. The top three People’s Choice teams will give 90-second presentations during the awards ceremony, after which the audience will vote one more time to select the top People’s Choice team.

The college’s Employer of the Year award will be also announced.

Students: Submit your project before April 5
