American Solar Challenge Coordination Intern (DHA)
In coordination with a national project team, the intern will support planning, communications, and interpretive activities for the American Solar Challenge. The American Solar Challenge is a collegiate design competition in which students design, build, and drive solar- powered cars on the open road. In July 2018, the event will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System by traveling 1,700 miles following the route of the Oregon Trail. The intern will be responsible for writing press releases, social media posts, and other communications; updating a briefing statement; participating in and leading team calls and completing follow-up tasks; developing the logistics plan for the travel of the project team during the event, and learning and conducting hands-on interpretive and educational activities.
