Virtually Cheer On 2021 Rangos Prizes Contestants

Since its inception in 2019, the John G. Rangos Sr. Prizes for Students and Faculty have inspired participants to enhance Duquesne’s curriculum, ensuring it remains relevant and prepares students for productive futures.

This ingenuity continues in 2021 with a virtual pitch competition, Four Minutes to Win It!, in which teams of student and faculty contestants will create four-minute videos describing their projects and ways in which their ideas can expand opportunities and enhance learning.

The University community is invited to support contestants, view the videos and offer feedback on the projects via a survey form by visiting the Rangos Prizes web page from Tuesday, March 9, to Monday, March 15. A panel of judges will review the feedback and notify prize winners in April.

“The Rangos Prizes competition has already produced a number of creative ideas and contributions to our campus, including imaginative courses, faculty support initiatives and interprofessional education opportunities,” said Dr. Darlene Weaver, associate provost for academic affairs. “The finalists for this year’s competition cycle further demonstrate the value of the prize program as a vehicle for innovation on our campus.”
