See submission guidelines and contest rules below.

Savannah Technical College programs prepare students for hire-ability in the current workforce! The most essential components employers look for are candidates that have BOTH a balance of high level technical job skills and development of soft skills to communicate and collaborate effectively in work relationships.

Organizations remain competitive by employees excelling in:

  • teamwork
  • flexibility
  • creativity
  • leadership
  • streamlined communication
  • effective conflict resolution
  • strong interaction with peers/clients

Show us how EPIC your soft skills are and create a BLOCKBUSTER!
