PRSSA Day-of Competition

The PRSSA Day-of Competition is an annual tradition during the Leadership Assembly. During the competition, students will be assigned to a team and will have one hour to research and plan a brief presentation based on the project brief. Teams will then present to a panel of judges. Participants will gain hands-on case study experience and build their portfolio.

We are proud to announce that Allison+Partners has come on board to sponsor this year’s competition. Allison+Partners has supported PRSSA for many years providing one of its largest student scholarships, the Stephen D. Pisinski Memorial Scholarship, and hosting career and educational webinars in conjunction with the Broom Center at San Diego State University where two of the agency’s Co-Founders Scott Allison and Scott Pansky graduated. Participants of the Competition will be creating a campaign for Smile Train.

Smile Train empowers local medical professionals with training, funding, and resources to provide free cleft surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children globally. We advance a sustainable solution and scalable global health model for cleft treatment, drastically improving children’s lives, including their ability to eat, breathe, speak, and ultimately thrive. To learn more about how Smile Train’s sustainable approach means donations have both an immediate and long-term impact, please visit

Participants of the winning team will be recognized on the PRSSA website, as well as receive $50 Amazon gift card or complimentary PRSSA National dues, as a reward for their creativity, resourcefulness and skill.
