We've chosen the winner of the UC Santa Cruz Hire Education video contest!

Film and digital media major Adam Mieuli, who just graduated in June, won our contest with his creative video that featured both style and substance. In addition to being exposed to a panel of Silicon Valley business leaders, Adam will receive an iPad2. Scroll down to see Adam's entry.

10 Grads in 10 DaysThe judges didn't have an easy job: Also featured below are two honorable mentions that were terrific and garnered many votes, as well. Thank you to all who entered.

Hire Education was our first student video contest. We plan to do it again next year! Meantime, check out our video library and subscribe to the UCSC e-newsletter.

Students were simply asked to make a "hire me" video with these key points in mind:

  • Originality
  • A statement of how UCSC has made you a hot candidate for employers
  • Maximum 60 seconds long
  • Must relate to this project, Hire Education
