Effie Collegiate

Each year, student teams compete to provide a solution to a marketing challenge presented by established organizations – their “clients”. 

Since the inaugural challenge in 2009, the competition has featured challenges from Subaru, IBM, V8, Pace, Target, U by Kotex, MINI, and HEINEKEN.

The competition culminates with selected finalists pitching their ideas in-person to the brand.  

Stay tuned for more information on the 2020 competition, to be announced Fall 2019.
