Chevrolet is working with CampusLIVE because its highly engaged, enthusiastic audience mirrors the youthful, adventurous spirit of the Sonic.

Today, CampusLIVE announced that Chevrolet is using its platform to launch and run its ‘Stay Clutch’ contest promoting the 2012 Sonic.

CampusLIVE designed and created the ‘Stay Clutch’ Challenge to live on the CampusLIVE website and Chevrolet Sonic’s Facebook fan page.

College students and young professionals will compete to win 4 grand prizes that include a special class at the 'Stay Clutch' driving school taught by a celebrity instructor in Kansas City, MO, as well as tickets to the 2012 State Farm™ Home Run Derby® and MLB® All-Star Game®.

Chevrolet’s ‘Stay Clutch’ contest centers around the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic which delivers an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway with class-leading acceleration when paired with the 1.4L turbo and six-speed manual transmission.

Many first-time manual drivers are on the roads, and the Sonic wants to help novice stick drivers learn to master the clutch.

Participants in the ‘Stay Clutch’ Challenge will watch an instructional video and submit a video telling Chevrolet why they want to learn to drive a stick and “Stay Clutch.”

CampusLIVE creates social action and guarantees results by engaging the highly influential 18-34 demographic on a deeper level than ever before through its design-tech platform.
