They earned the honor for their “Break the Sound Barrier” entry that addressed a brief, or assignment, from Spotify that asked how the music-streaming service could “spread positivity by using technology to bring listeners closer to the creators and communities they love.” The work was done in an upper-level portfolio course taught by professor of practice Mel White.
