We need your help. The FTC North Super Regional is being planned and coordinated by The College of Engineering at The University of Iowa. Because of this, we have to follow The University’s system in regards to reaching out media. And, honestly, I have not been very happy with this system. When we send out press releases and press notifications, the press doesn’t grab at them. This is where WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Help us bring attention to the FTC North Super Regional. Reach out to the media outlets in your area and beyond. Let’s get as much attention on this as we can. As hard as we try to reach out to media outlets, they like to hear from schools and kids. (And, the great things being done at schools with kids.) TIME FOR US TO MAKE FTC CELEBRATED.
Attached is a sample press release. This is to help you get started.
For more information about press releases, please visit: http://www.webwire.com/FormatGuidelines.asp
The yellow areas is where you enter information about your team, if you chose to do so.
If these could go out to media outlets during the week of March 24 - that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, start tweeting! #FTCNorthSR and @FTC_North_SR
Lets make this event viral!!
