CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office is looking for 100 technology and computer science college students from across the nation to travel to Chicago during Lollapalooza 2013 weekend.

The students will be part of ThinkChicago: Lollapalooza. The event will allow the students to attend the music festival as well as a series of workshops designed to showcase Chicago as a hub of innovation, including resume pairings and interviews hosted by local companies.

In a statement Emanuel says the event is an example of how his administration is trying to attract the best and brightest to Chicago.

Interested students have until May 31 to submit an online application. Event organizers say they prefer that candidates be juniors or seniors in college.

The music festival will run Aug. 2 through 4.
