January Update

Posted By Sue M. Taylor, Thursday, February 04, 2010
Updated: Thursday, February 04, 2010
The start of the spring semester didn't leave much time for work on our project until just this past week. Things are moving quickly now. Our application process for the competition is now "live" online. An e-mail "blitz" to local high schools takes place today with hard copy of flyers to follow next week. The flyers are also posted on the SIUE campus (our partner in this project) and on our own campus. Two of the three judges for the elevator pitch competition have confirmed their participation and we hope hear from the third judge very soon. Our SCORE partners are enthused and ready to serve as evaluators for the online applications (25 applicants will be selected to participate in the elevator pitch event.)
Pulbicity is the pirmary focus now with follow-up messages planned to each high school in the coming weeks. Press releases to generate community interest are another key priority and we are working with our institutional marketing department in that area. I hope to be able to tell you about all the applications we have received in my February report!  (Note: The deadline for applications is April 5 so I may be engaged in wishful thinking for February submissions.)
