In PRSSA news, an upcoming event is taking place on October 30 called the Bateman Competition. This national case study was established in 1973 and named after Carroll J. Bateman.
The Bateman Competition is a premire case study for students in the public relations field. Any student member of PRSSA is eligible to compete.
The competition allows students in small groups to create a campaign for a public relations situation that deals with treatment options for young cancer patients. The competition evaluates the student campaign creations and picks 3 finalists to showcase their work. Prize money and trophies are awarded to the top 3 finalists.
The overall goal of the competition this year is grow awareness for With Purpose, a foundation invested in educating more people about childhood cancer through the group campaigns. In addition to growing awareness, the competition also has a goal of challenging students to come up with real campaigns for actual situations.
