Advertising & Sponsorship

Supporting Future Professionals

As a PRSSA sponsor or advertiser, you provide an outstanding educational experience for students — but good will certainly isn’t the only benefit of the 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 for you 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 sponsors include the U.S. Census Bureau, General Motors Company and Habitat for Humanity.

If the Bateman Competition does not fit your needs or timeframe, contact PRSSA Vice President of Education 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.

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, Leadership Rally and Regional Conferences.
