Which stands for Pitch of the Week, it was held every Wednesday in April on the first floor near the FAB LAB, from noon to one p.m. POW! is a game-show-style contest where teams of three or four students, compete to pitch their proposals to randomly selected prompts. The event consisted of four rounds total, three preliminary and one final.
The final round was this past Wednesday. Team Three, Beardy McBeardo Faces took home the win, for the Pitch of the Week’s 2017 Final Challenge.
