UVU PRSSA Holds Their First Ever Campaigns Night, “Under PRessure”
Inspired by the PRSSA National Conference Campaigns Night
Orem, Utah, November 9, 2016 – Utah Valley University’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is hosting their first ever public relations campaigns night, “Under PRessure”, on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 7 p.m. at UVU in the Classroom Building (CB) 204.

“We are so excited to host our first campaigns night!” said Britnee Bromley-Nuerhing, UVU PRSSA’s president. “This is an exciting, engaged learning opportunity, open to all students wherein they may put their public relations skills to work in a fun and competitive environment alongside their peers.”
Attendees will be divided up into teams filled with both young and older classmen (both of which bring unique perspectives and valuable skills to the group) and together will be given a case study, (campaign prompt). Each team will then have one hour to research and develop a communications plan in response to the prompt and its specific guidelines. All are welcome to bring a laptop to assist with research needs.
After one hour, each group will film an explanatory video which will then be submitted to a judging panel of PR professionals. Members of the winning team will receive recognition on the PRSSA website, newsletter and social media outlets as well as a certificate and gift card. The winning team will be announced on November 28th, via PRSSA’s social media outlets and website.
“This event will be so beneficial to those that attend,” said Bromley-Nuerhing. “This event will provide students hands-on case study and resume-building experience, an expansion to their portfolios and the chance to network with fellow communication students. We cannot wait for everything to come together and to make this a night students won’t forget.”
