On Tuesday, February 8, nationally renowned public relations and new media expert Sarah Evans will be in Springfield Missouri for the Social: IRL Social Marketing Boot Camp.
During the event Sarah will spend some six hours taking an in-depth look at the role of social media in marketing and public relations. This will be a very hands-on learning experience focussing on practical tools and techniques attendees can take and implement in a very real way.
The event also represents a tremendous opportunity for any student interested in a career in marketing or public relations. Sarah has devoted a considerable amount of time to helping students and new professionals, including the launch of the Sevans Network to provide practical support and assistance.
Recognizing the value of this opportunity, we are very pleased that one of our sponsors, Klout, are providing a chance for two full time students to attend the event at no charge.
To apply for one of the two complimentary registrations, students should describe in 500 words or less what they hope to learn from Sarah at the Social Marketing Boot Camp, and explain how they feel they will be able to use social media in their career or community.
Use our online contact form to submit entries. Make sure to include full name, email, contact phone number, and Twitter user name (if applicable).
Entries must be received by 5pm on Friday, February 4. Individuals receiving the complimentary registrations will be contacted Saturday February 5. Each individual will receive a complimentary event registration. They will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses.
Thanks to Klout for providing this opportunity to two special “future influencers”.
Great that you're offering this, but students can't afford their own travel and accommodations unless they happen to live nearby.
