Fests & Competitions

Through the contests, challenges and championships Cresta organizes, students awaken the competitive spirit and put to test their skills, abilities and knowledge in controlled environments. Gaining access to a wide network of students across disciplines and regions promotes peer-to-peer learning. In addition to exchanging ideas and culture, you will feel the synergy of racing against the clock with like-minded peers to meet a goal. Helping you understand your strengths and areas of improvement, these battles of intellect and charisma are a source of healthy competition and recognition. You will not only have the most memorable experiences, but also learn to confidently address crowds, think on your feet and solve problems on the spot. 

Why Fests & Competitions?

Fests and competitions are the launchpad for your hidden and budding talents. While participating in these events helps you develop your performance skills, organizing them gives you a pragmatic view of management. Fest and Competitions teach you how to present yourself and handle the pressure of doing so.
