Each lab holds 20 workstations with medium to large flat screen monitors. Each student/alumni participant will present their portfolios on 2-3 monitors to allow enough room to chat and to quickly peruse their portfolio. A resume and card will also be available from each participant. What we are asking from businesses will be to give a suggested donation to the New Media Group Scholarship Fund for incoming high school students attending WCC.
