Students Create Video Posters Representing 2021 Precast Studios
Because the PCI Foundation was unable to sponsor in-person posters at the PCI 2021 Convention, we are sponsoring an optional video poster session competition between all relevant 2020-2021 academic year academic programs. Three student groups entered the competition with three distinctly different videos highlighting the programs at their school.
The PCI Foundation will be awarding a cash prize to all the students who participated in the making of these videos. Thank you for showing off your school's program.
