Connect registration for students

Although the Connect conference is designed primarily for public relations educators and professionals, a large number of students have also expressed an interest in attending. We love that enthusiasm and therefore have reserved 10 seats for students.

We’re looking for students who can join the conversation. In particular, we’d like to identify at least a few students who can help live blog, tweet, take pictures, podcast, and get more experience using the social media we’ll be learning about at Connect. So, we’re asking interested students to send us a page—250 words—describing your social media experience and explaining why you’d like to attend. (If you don’t have social media experience, you’ll be able to attend the Friday bootcamp to learn the basics.)

Students (even those who get put to work providing social media coverage of the conference) are responsible for the $150 registration fee, plus travel/hotel expenses for those not from Athens. Grady College students, if selected, can apply to the Yarbrough Fund to cover the cost of registration.

Please send your one-page application, which should include your name, school, and e-mail address, to karenm (at) uga (dot) edu by Sept. 2, 2008. The lucky 10 will be informed by Sept. 5, 2008.
