IT MAY be the Easter holidays, but students have still been working hard to produce a marketing campaign to promote their college this summer.

Students at North Hertfordshire College (NHC) will be pitching their campaign ideas to a panel of judges from the Comet’s parent company, Archant Herts and Cambs.

They will be competing for a place at the Big Student News Takeover this May, and to ultimately win a paid internship with the Comet’s digital division.

Students are competing in teams as well as individually to design the summer marketing campaign.

The Comet has already featured the teams from IT, Media and iMedia courses, and this week, it’s time to meet students Ryan Gaston and Chris Collier, who will be pitching their individual entries to the competition.

Ryan, who studies iMedia, enjoys graphic design and is working on a campaign based on computer game imagery and how studying at NHC enables students to progress onto employment or university study.

IT student Chris enjoys photography and is working on a campaign to showcase the facilities and opportunities for students at college through photographs.
