Work and Learn Indiana seeks nominations

Work and Learn Indiana (formerly Indiana INTERNnet) is seeking nominations for its 16th annual IMPACT Awards program, which celebrates internship excellence and the collaborations that make them happen.

Honors will be given to the Intern of the Year (college, high school and non-traditional), Career Development Professional of the Year (high school and college), Intern Supervisor of the Year and Employer of the Year (for-profit and nonprofit).

“Give kudos to an intern who helped fill your workforce gap and did an amazing job, or acknowledge a key collaborator in the internship process,” says Jason Bearce, vice president of workforce development and education for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, which is home to Work and Learn Indiana.

“It will only take a short time to acknowledge someone’s dedication and you don’t need to be a Work and Learn Indiana user to submit a nomination.”

The nomination form is available online and there is no limit to the number an individual or organization may submit. The submission deadline is November 5.

To learn more, visit or call (317) 264-6874.

Winners will be announced at the virtual IMPACT Awards Celebration in February 2022. Sponsorships for the celebration are available; contact Ashley Williams at (317) 264-6874 or for details.

It is part of the Indiana Chamber’s emerging Institute for Workforce Excellence, which is dedicated to helping employers attract, develop and retain high-skilled, productive talent in Indiana.
