HORIZON AWARDS 2018 PRESENTING SPONSOR

Each year TAG-Ed places well over 100 students in internships, providing them with critical work experience and invaluable mentorship opportunities.

Year after year, intern host companies are amazed at what their interns can accomplish in just a few short weeks – challenging company norms and contributing directly to the bottom line. For many students, the exposure to new industries and invested experts is enough to launch them on a new and exciting career path.

The Horizon Awards is an opportunity to capture and celebrate outstanding students and dedicated mentors. Take a look at the 2018 award categories and nominate your student or mentor today. Nominations have been extended to 11:59 pm on Friday, July 20, 2018.
