(INDIANAPOLIS) — The annual IMPACT Awards recognize the best in Indiana internships and mentoring. Did you host an intern this year who went above and beyond? Does your company have an internship program that provides a solid experiential learning opportunity for students? Do you collaborate with a high school or post-secondary institution with an outstanding career development staff?
The 12th annual IMPACT Awards are presented by Indiana INTERNnet, a statewide resource for Hoosier employers seeking interns, individuals searching for internships and educators. The organization, managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, will recognize three outstanding interns, a career development professional and two employers of the year.

- Outstanding Intern (high school, college and non-traditional): contribution to employer’s business; demonstrated leadership skills during internship; and professionalism.
- Outstanding Career Development Professional: assistance to students with internship opportunities; communication with students/employers; and coaching students on internship professionalism and career development.
- Outstanding Employer (nonprofit and for-profit): innovative approach to an internship program; formation of meaningful project work; and providing student with professional mentor and networking opportunities.
