Kent State PR Students Named National Finalists in PRSSA Bateman Competition
For the first time, a team of Kent State University students will compete as finalists in the Public Relations Student Society of America's annual Bateman case study competition.
The Bateman competition requires students to create, implement and evaluate a public relations plan for a real client. For the 2013 competition, students were given the task of creating an anti-bullying campaign and implementing it in a local school.
Out of 68 teams from across the country that submitted entries, PRSSA judges chose Kent State’s “Blue” team as one of three national finalists. Kent State Blue will present its campaign via Skype May 10 to a second panel of judges, who will then determine the final three placements.

PRSSA Kent Comes Together With Relay for Life
For many, the color purple is a point on a color wheel or a novel by Alice Walker. For others, the color purple represents cancer research and the Relay for Life Foundation.
Kent State University will be hosting its Relay for Life, an organized overnight community fundraising walk, on April 27.
PRSSA Kent is working with AAF Kent to organize a team.
According to Relay for Life’s official website, joining Relay is about more than fighting to cure a specific type of cancer. Instead, it is about creating a world without disease.
