What do you get when you combine creative WVU students, area professionals and three local nonprofits for 24 hours?
CreateAthon@WVU. The event that puts students and professionals to the challenge of creating pro bono marketing materials for three local nonprofits. Three teams of students with the assistance of a professional mentor will compete to create the best possible material for the deserving organizations.
On the day of CreateAthon, each participant will be assigned to a team and be given a creative brief detailing the needs of each non-profit organization. From there, the creative marathon begins.
Around the clock, each team will work alongside professional mentors to prepare pro-bono marketing and communications materials. The work completed by each team will be implemented within the three participating nonprofit organizations. Most importantly, CreateAthon@WVU will ensure hard work is rewarded by providing free food, activities, and giveaways throughout the night.
