After this year's New York Intern Project entrants garnered more than 236,000 total page views and a combined total of 15,953 votes and 161 comments to the contest, Affect is pleased to finally name the grand prize winner of the 2012 New York Intern Project. A big congratulations to University of Akron, Ohio's very own Katey Kimpel!
Katey's journey to become the winner began after she garnered more than 1,200 votes in an online voting round. Katey was selected as one of two finalists who were flown to New York City after dazzling our judges during the semi-final interviews. Katey's passion and enthusiasm for PR shone through during the final round, securing her spot as this year's New York Intern Project grand prize winner.
Affect would like to thank everyone who entered, voted for their favorite entries and supported The New York Intern Project. In addition, a huge thank you to our judges for their work in helping select our winner!
Katey will start her internship with Affect soon, and we can’t wait to have her aboard! Follow along on our blog to learn more about her internship and experience at Affect this summer.

We’ll announce the lucky New York Intern Project grand prize winner by May 18, 2012! Good luck!
