Campaign Rules & Guidelines
The CW Campaign invites students to execute a public relations campaign on and around campus for two of television’s hottest new shows — “90210” and “Melrose Place” — airing Tuesday nights on The CW. Students will research and plan their campaigns in August and September, implement from Sept. 11–Oct. 9, and submit their entries to PRSSA by Oct. 26.
The best campaigns will be honored at the PRSSA Awards Ceremony during the 2009 National Conference in San Diego by an actor from one of The CW’s hit series. The team with the best campaign will be awarded a private meet-and-greet with the actor and the opportunity to plan the actor’s media tour while in San Diego.
