“Historically, student marketing competitions test the students’ brand and strategic acumen. But for this contest, we are putting creativity on the pedestal to develop a culture of creativity early on, that should benefit the students when they eventually become professionals themselves.


I hope the competitors see this as an opportunity to express their creative personas while solving a real marketing problem at the same time,” says Wacky Torres, IMMAP Digital YouthCon sub-committee Chair.


The competition is open to the first 20 teams consisting of registered YouthCon delegates. Teams should have 6 members.
