2009 NASA Means Business Student Competition
Attention Undergraduate and Graduate Students!!!
About a year ago I was a judge for this student competition and I highly encourage students to participate in this!
NASA needs your help in designing a strategy to articulate the many anticipated contributions that its Constellation Program will make to space exploration as well as to everyday life on Earth. In return, NASA wants to give YOU an outstanding, one-of-a-kind educational experience!
The Constellation Program is designing and building America's next generation human spaceflight system, which will replace the Space Shuttle by providing access to the International Space Station and other destinations in Earth orbit. It will also take America back to the Moon and on to Mars.
..to design and prepare a Constellation Program Branding Strategy, and
Illustrate that strategy in a 30-second video public service announcement (PSA) production.
For this effort we strongly urge you organize a team with a wide range of backgrounds - not just science and engineering, but also business, advertising, marketing, public relations, graphic arts and animation, communication, radio-television-film, journalism and other similar disciplines.
The prize for the 5 finalist teams?
A cash award of $1,000, and an invitation to "behind-the-scenes" visits at both the Johnson Space Center and Kennedy Space Center.
The grand prize?
You have to choose between a cash award of $1000 or a ride on the Zero Gravity Corporation's G-FORCE ONE aircraft.
