Advertising and Sponsorship

Supporting Future Professionals

As a PRSSA sponsor or advertiser, you provide an outstanding educational experience for students — but goodwill certainly isn’t the only benefit of sponsorship. Your brand, cause, product or service is connected to more than 11,000 students committed to the study and practice of public relations.

Case Study Competitions

PRSSA has numerous opportunities to sponsor case study competitions tailored to your needs. These competitions are outstanding learning opportunities for students, who advocate your cause nationwide through locally targeted campaigns.

PRSSA’s most prestigious program is the Bateman Case Study Competition, for which one sponsor is selected each year. More than 75 student teams, advised by a Professional and Faculty Adviser, compete annually. Past clients include the U.S. Census Bureau, United Way Worldwide, Ally Financial and the Student Veterans of America.

If the Bateman Competition does not fit your needs or time frame, contact PRSSA Executive Director Jeneen Garcia to discuss sponsoring a mini-competition. See the outstanding work students have done for such PRSSA sponsors as Kohler, Starbucks and The CW Network by reviewing past competitions.

Event Sponsorships

Sponsoring a PRSSA event gives you the opportunity for wide recognition and face-to-face interaction with students. PRSSA offers sponsorships at its National Conference, National Assembly and Leadership Rally.
