EHS is very proud to announce the winner of its inaugural Free Summer Housing Video Contest, Charleston, WV native Cory Dobson!

To enter to win the contest, each student/intern had to answer the question, “What would you do for free housing this summer in New York City with EHS?” using a creative, homemade 60-90 second video. On May 31st, a winner was selected from the top five most-viewed videos, and awarded free housing this summer in New York City.
Dobson says, "I hope to do a great job at my internship and learn as much as I can about software development, all while making as many friends as I can here at EHS! I'm a small town college kid here in New York, and I want to meet as many people as possible! I'm so glad the contest opened up this door for me. I have everyone who shared my video, and of course EHS, to thank for it!"

A major thanks to ALL of the students from across the nation who submitted entries, which were impressive, creative, and fun! Check out all of the entries on the official EHS YouTube page.

Thanks to all for making this such a success!
