The awards are designed to recognize significant corporate contributions to improving education, academic and career opportunities, and workforce preparation for the community.
SEE STUDENTS IN ACTION
The Austin-based home shopping network and e-commerce site were nominated for the award for their participation in the Fashion Collective initiative at Round Rock ISD. Together, the network and the school district help prepare young entrepreneurs for the fashion industry. Students experience the entire development cycle and can participate by learning how to create their own designs.
“The Fashion Collective competition exposes students to the innards of the fashion industry,” says Michelle Long, CSR Director for Shop LC. “Students receive real-world experience, an opportunity to earn money, and a fantastic narrative for their application or resume.”
For the upcoming school year, Shop LC is expanding the program throughout the Austin area, welcoming high school and college students interested in fashion. The program will include over $10,000 in cash prizes, summer internship opportunities, and a chance for student designs to appear on the network. Round Rock ISD was the program’s pioneer partner.
