    Sports Marketing-Hawks Challenge

    The Hawks sponsored a marketing challenge that we have been working on in class. They invited students to use their creativity and marketing knowledge to help sell out the Martin Luther King Day Game against the Miami Heat.  We are proud to announce after presenting to five Hawks Marketing Executives, our two student teams won first and third place in the state!
    Chandler Burnell and Payton Dishon (3rd place) and Christian O’Malley and John O’Connor (1st place)
     Our 1st place team won unprecedented behind-the-scene access to the operations of a professional sports team by being awarded an entire day to shadow the Atlanta Hawks Executives.
