A team of Industrial Engineering students has earned first place in a national video competition hosted by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers.

The team, composed of Nathan Hemby, Olivia Ohlstein and Parker Galligan, beat out 10 teams from across the country to take the top spot. Organizers challenged student groups to create a video promoting the field of industrial and systems engineering to high school students, teachers and college counselors, with the goal of encouraging future students to pursue the profession.

The team earned a $1,000 grant along with first-place recognition, and they will be honored at the IISE Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, in May.
