The 4th Annual RJI Student Competition builds upon its past success and takes it up another several notches this year by targeting Android, Google’s mobile operating system. Android development offers you the opportunity to add yet another skill set into your career toolbox. This year we have three technology partners to enable student teams to dream BIG: Adobe, Google and Sprint. We are thrilled to announce that our media partner this year will again be Hearst Innovation, the company’s internal unit charged with fostering innovation across broadcast, newspaper, magazine and digital brands. We anticipate a larger focus on strategic communication this year.
