The top five finalists competed in the STXtreme Intern Showdown on November 2-5. During the showdown, finalists competed in a social media scavenger hunt around Baltimore where they had to complete tasks such as finding the Johns Hopkins Lacrosse sweater from 1915 and tweeting a picture of it. The finalists got creative with the pictures and tweets, showing off their lacrosse skills and getting celebrities such as Duff Goldman to retweet them. Judges ranked the top finalists for their resumes, application videos, social media scavenger hunt, interview answers and the sports challenge. Watch exciting highlights from the scavenger hunt and showdown on STX’s YouTube channel and view pictures from the competition here.
The STXtreme Internship is focused on real sports marketing experience and exposure. Allen and Henry will participate in projects such as photo shoots, sales meetings and college game days as a part of their internship.
