Posted: March 5, 2009 by IUsec in Contests, Internships

TWIX® Brand is launching the “Funniest College Student on Campus Contest,” giving students nationwide a chance to win $3,000 and the ultimate week-long internship: a behind-the-scenes taste of the business of comedy in Chicago at the TBS Very Funny Festival: Just For Laughs in June. Now through April Fools’ Day, students attending a U.S. college, university, trade school or junior college can submit funny-focused video entries at http://www.funnieststudent.twix.com/ <http://www.funnieststudent.twix.com/> .

This once-in-a-lifetime, one-week internship is scheduled to include:·

A meeting with a senior manager of the TBS Very Funny Festival: Just For Laughs ·

The opportunity to shadow a member of the Festival staff·

A chance to see the inner workings of a festival rehearsal·

Tickets to six different festival shows

Not only is this internship a great opportunity in itself, it would be a great way for Communications majors and/or aspiring actors to network. As a journalism major, I could have only hoped for an opportunity like this while I was at IU.

Thanks so much for your time,

Julie
