Virtual Volunteer, Internship, and Career Opportunities with CALPIRG Students

April 16th, 2020

CALPIRG Students is our student-run organization that advocates for the interests of the public and students. During this time of social distancing, we have remote volunteer

opportunities and internships available to help people in need, protect public health and

the environment, and keep our community civically engaged. We are also hiring seniors

for full-time positions after graduation. Fill out this interest form if you want to get involved or learn more about these opportunities.

 

For over 45 years, we’ve worked to protect our environment and fight climate change, address

food insecurity, and help students vote. We believe students have the power to shape the future, and we organize on UC campuses and statewide to win real, concrete victories.

Just last week, we won the American Climate Leadership award for our work in getting our UC’s to commit to 100% clean electricity by 2025! The reason why we are so effective on these issues is because we represent thousands of students here at UCLA and tens of thousands of students across the UC system who have pledged CALPIRG.

We are the largest and most diverse generation alive and we have the power to elect the next generation of leaders who will fight for our vision for the future. This Spring, we are working to turn out the youth vote in the 2020 elections by asking students to pledge to vote, working with administration, and building a huge coalition of groups on campus committed to turning out the vote.

We’re also continuing our work to protect our oceans from single-use plastics and to make textbooks more affordable for students, as well as working to ensure students basic needs are being met in light of COVID19 and calling on the federal government to expand medical resources.

There’s still so much we can do to make a positive difference, work with a fun team, and

learn awesome social change skills this quarter. If you want to make change with us, fill

out the interest form here.

MOA – Design and Build Competition

March 11th, 2020

Design and Build Competition for University Students

The Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) headquartered in Englewood, CO announces the Design and Build Competition, a design competition open to any U.S. based undergraduate or graduate student who is enrolled in a creative field of study.

This is the second annual competition under MOA’s longstanding Design and Build program and solicits design proposals from individual students or student teams from across the nation in response to a provided theme and challenge. The competition can also be taken on as a class project. The goal of the competition is to cultivate potential from emerging artists, architecture and design students and to allow them the space to conceptualize inventive ideas within a set of boundaries.
The theme for 2020 is Art as Sanctuary and the challenge is to design a structure that the public could utilize to rest, or take temporary shelter from the elements, near a recreational trail in public open spaces. The design should utilize architecture and/or sculpture/installation as a solution, while also considering environmental impact and sustainability in use of materials. Contestant’s designs will need to respond to one of four hypothetical physical sites for the conceptual project. Entries will be reviewed by the MOA Board of Trustees, Executive Staff and a professional in the field, guest panelist.
Competition Prizes

1st place team- $5,000 + winning entry to be archived & featured on competition website
2nd place team- $2,500 + winning entry to be archived & featured on competition website
3rd place team- $1,000 + winning entry to be archived & featured on competition website
In addition there will be a Guest Panelist Honorable Mention prize of $500.
The design proposal registration portal is now open and the deadline to submit is July 11, 2020.
