"By being involved with sports, high school athletes learn the importance of determination, dedication and motivation," said Chris Krause, President and CEO of NCSA. "These characteristics not only make them successful in sports, but successful in their everyday lives. We are thrilled to work with Brickfish on a campaign that rewards high school athletes for all their hard work."

NCSA will also award the grand prize winner a tour of the NCSA office and a NCSA Power Package, which includes a NCSA edited highlight DVD and a film evaluation from a NCSA scouting expert. The runner-up and the most viral winner will each receive a NCSA edited highlight DVD, a NCSA warm-up suit and a NCSA Dri-FIT t-shirt. The NCSA will also award weekly sign-up sweepstakes winners with a NCSA Dri-FIT t-shirt.

Brickfish social media campaigns enable brands and advertising agencies to launch online marketing campaigns that get consumers engaged in a meaningful brand dialogue. Consumers create exciting, personalized brand-focused user-generated content (UGC) and then virally share the campaign and their content with their vast social networks via email, blogs, instant messaging and hundreds of social networks. Campaign participants interact with the brand campaign in a variety of ways that include creating, reviewing, sharing, voting upon, and watching brand-relevant content. This powerful viral marketing vehicle generates extensive brand awareness, engagement, reach and results.

"The opportunity to participate in college level sports is directly related to the amount of exposure a high school athlete receives," said Brian Dunn, CEO Brickfish. "This campaign gives athletes an opportunity to get the attention they deserve on hundreds of social networking sites. We can't wait to see the raw, pure talent of high school athletes from across the country."
