WTVA-TV ran this annual scholarship video contest sponsored in part by a local community college. They asked local college freshmen to submit a short video answering “Which person in your life has inspired you to make a difference in your community? What kind of legacy have they inspired you to leave?”. A panel of Administrator staff and sponsor representatives determine a winner who receives a $1,000 scholarship! A great goodwill campaign for both the station and advertiser.



Quizzes are perfect promotions for education-focused advertisers. KPWJ-FM ran a quiz-bundle campaign with a local math learning center. They utilized a ready-made turnkey to craft each ‘Are Your Smarter Than…’ quiz and collected over 160 opt-ins and 25 leads for the advertiser. And, to top it off, the station earned $3,000 in sponsorship revenue for the station. Check out the full case study here.
