AMA Triangle’s 2019 Marketing Jam: Information and registration
Each year, Marketing Jam brings students together from local colleges in Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro, and Fayetteville, North Carolina to solve real-world marketing issue using the tools, tactics, and strategies they’ve learned in their marketing studies.
This one-day “hackathon” challenges students in a unique way by randomly placing them into teams, thus tying their success to that of their peers — simulating a genuine agency experience. To help mentor and guide the creative process, students are also connected with local marketing professionals — allowing students the opportunity to showcase their skills and foster ongoing mentor relationships.
To honor the winners, AMA Triangle will award the winning team a $2,000 scholarship, a session at the High Five Conference on March 5th, mentors from the AMA Triangle CONNECT & INSPIRE team, LinkedIn recommendations from the Director of Collegiate Relations, and bragging rights to countless potential employers. Throughout the course of the competition, students will also be able to connect with local marketing professionals, showcasing their skills and fostering ongoing mentoring relationships.
