Interns will work with our co-founder, professionals, and other interns to raise awareness of the need and of this new solution. Among other things, interns will help as we: - refine our sports marketing strategy - work with BSN, a major sports retailer, to raise awareness - invite professional and college athletes to create profile pages on ClassWish.org, honoring their former teachers or coaches, and encouraging support for school sports equipment - invite those athletes to appear in web banner ads promoting support of sports equipment in schools. We are customizing those banners so that any New York school could have, for instance, a Derek Jeter web banner promoting their own sports program - work with publicists for athletes to generate additional exposure - seek the promotional support of professional sports teams and venues - solicit editorial coverage and the donation of unsold ad inventory from sports magazines, television shows and websites; the sports sections of newspapers; and from blogs and fan sites - invite promotional support and sponsorship from sporting goods companies - seek partnerships with the NFL, USA Football, and other sports organizations - create video and radio PSAs and seek distribution for them - launch a student video contest, "It's Not Fair! My school doesn't even have sports equipment" and a student journalism contest with the same theme. - use social media to engage coaches, students, and consumers READ MORE AND APPLY AT: http://classwish-intern-postings.org
