    Got any plans for this summer? How about working on a three-month paid placement at MTV?

    MTV has launched a competition called Student of the Year - which it's dubbing a "nationwide search to find the UK’s most exciting, inspiring, passionate and ambitious student".


    Enter the contest and, if you manage to convince the public and a panel of judges of your all-round awesomeness, you'll bag a three-month paid internship at MTV's European headquarters in Camden Lock, as well as a swag bag that includes an iPad mini.

    The Student Room has teamed up with MTV to bring you all the latest from the competition and - fingers crossed - help us make sure it's a TSR member who walks off with the top prize!

    How to enter:
    You'll need to record a quick video of yourself, telling the world why you should be crowned Student of the Year. You can submit your video any time up until Monday 13 May, when MTV will choose a shortlist of the 20 best candidates.

    That shortlist will be opened up for public voting, with the five top-voted students going through to the final. That top five will then face a grilling in front of a panel of judges, with one star student chosen to win the top prize.

    Who's going to win?
    Maybe you! MTV says its judges will be looking "for someone who inspires, excites and ignites on every level. From a positive and proactive approach, to passion, drive and creativity – they will be looking for someone who is as digitally savvy as they are street smart and a team player. A mover and shaker who stands out from the crowd!"

    What are the prizes?
    First prize is a three-month paid internship at MTV’s offices in Camden this summer. On top of that, you'll also get two tickets to this year’s European Music Awards in Amsterdam, an iPad mini and a £500 holiday.

    The four runners up each get a one-week work placement and a sackful of MTV merchandise.


    Prizes for voting:
    When the shortlist stage kicks in, all of those who vote will also get the chance to win, with 10 pairs of tickets to the first-ever Isle of Man Festival up for grabs.

    So, who's up for entering? Let us know! The Student Room is all about celebrating how great students are, and it would be great to see one of our members walk off with the top prize.

    We'll be following the competition all the way through on this official thread, with video updates coming from MTV, so be sure to check back regularly.

    Mon 15 April - entries open
    Mon 13 May - entries close, shortlist decided

    I'm 99% sure it's for anyone who's a student. We're going to have an official rep from MTV joining us on this thread on a regular basis throughout the competition, so they'll be able to answer this for definite.



    Anyone who enters - do keep us posted. If you make it to the shortlist, we'll mobilise the TSR forces behind you! You could also upload your video here first, for feedback from the community, before uploading it to MTV.
