The College Face-off: Social Media for Social Good
College Students compete for the crown of social media kingpin while helping local nonprofit organizations.
Friday, September 16, 2-5pm
The College Face-off: Social Media for Social Good is a Boston-based intercollegiate challenge aimed towards developing marketing strategies to help non-profit organizations. Participating students will be able to learn and solve real world challenges, as well as showcase their marketing knowledge and skills.
Each team of students will represent their university and will be given a specific non-profit to work with. These teams will then research company challenges and work towards developing an overarching integrated strategy appropriate for the organization’s culture and needs. All teams will present their final strategy to a panel of judges consisting of marketing professionals in the area, with three finalists determined based on the creativity, plausibility, and effectiveness of their strategy. In the spirit of social good, the Grand Prize winning team will win a cash prize donation to the non-profit they are paired with.
The College Face-off aims to get students interested in the world of marketing. By participating in this challenge, students not only get a chance to do work for social good, but they also gain the opportunity to network with professionals in the area and will receive valuable experience in developing their own marketing skills.
