become a Sponsor
The excitement is high going into Media Now’s eighth season. We anticipate having another highly motivated group of 350+ high school journalists and advisers from more than 40 different schools across the country come together this summer for Media Now.
While we work hard to keep costs down for our campers, there are still many students under financial stress that may keep them from attending. We encourage camper sponsorship to help ease this stress. You’ll see the various options below. Each gift is greatly appreciated and given based on needs and desire to attend. You can give anonymously or, if preferred, a business or publication name can be added to the camp materials at the various levels.
Please send any questions about becoming a sponsor to co-director, Kate Manfull (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your generosity in advance.
$50 or Product CONTRIBUTOR
This level of sponsorship helps a camper make the first steps towards a camp experience. You can identify a specific recipient or donate to a fund that helps those in need of financial assistance get to camp. Product donations for camper bags are also accepted at varying levels. Have a treat to share with students that gets your business name into their hands? Contribute to the camper goodie bag.
$275 OR $400 THE FULL RIDE
Your generous gift of either $275 at Webster University or $400 for Drake University will provide a deserving journalist with the full camp experience. This gift will cover the cost of attending camp, course fees, meals and housing during the bootcamp. Give anonymously or have your organization recognized as a camp sponsor.
$500 LUNCH SPONSOR
We are looking to fill three lunch sponsorships at Webster University camp in St. Louis this summer. With this sponsorship you’ll get direct access to the students through their individual meal times each day.
$1,000+ TITLE SPONSORSHIP
As a title sponsor of the camp, you get access to students, parents and advisers through email communication, on site signage and promotional items, video, social media attention and a logo on the camper T-shirts. Each title sponsor experience is custom-built. This sponsorship level is per camp location.
WANT TO GIVE MORE? WE HAVE OPTIONS.
[For Businesses/organizations looking to give $500+ in product or cash donation to support the overall camp experience.]
ENEWS ACCESS Our customized title sponsorships include access to camper, parent and advisers through our email communication. You will have two customized messages and two featured spaces within the all camp emails. VIDEOS We create videos specifically for this camp about your brand, then share online and in large group sessions. PHOTOS If you donate items with your name on them, we capture excited students using or wearing your business name, product or gift. SOCIAL SHARE Custom games and contests get your business repeat mentions and direct ties to the students and advisers at camp and external online play. CUSTOMIZED INTERACTION We work with you to customize branding opportunities with our campers that make it a fun and rewarding experience for all. Scavenger hunts, texting games, awards banquet sponsorship or take-home packages for attendees—whatever your fancy. We want to make it work for you.
