Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
Paying for college can be a daunting task for parents in the midst of the fiscal cliff, recession and economic crisis. Many parents and teens are turning to the Internet and for good reason - more and more Global and National Brands are promoting Online Social Media Contests to do Scholarship Giveaways.
Kelsie Berg has been declared the official winner of the Dr. Pepper Tuition Challenge and the winner of the $100,000 scholarship fund. Kelsie is a 2012 grad of Broken Arrow and was recently crowned Miss Broken Arrow, is attending the University of Oklahoma. She is getting her undergrad in Mass Communications and her post graduate work will be in Law. Kelsie will be featured during the BCS halftime show when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide square off Monday night in Miami Gardens Florida.
"When you think about it - it just makes sense," says Michelle Butler, CMO at M3 New Media. "National Brands like Dr. Pepper need a younger crowd with established friendship networks to bring viewers and eyeballs back to Network Television. We recently helped our clients reconnect with niched demographics in opening for the Beach Boys, get movie deals, fund free agents in the NFL between gigs and professional boxers during training between title bouts."
You could say Kelsie and her Social Media story is already positively affecting the University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma economy. Local Tulsa and Broken Arrow businesses are applauding as she decides to spend her new tuition dollars in Oklahoma - many of whom supported her on her journey. Sunsations Tulsa has agreed to let Kelsie tan for Free and many Oklahomans eyes will be on Kelsie as she competes for Miss Oklahoma in June and unveils her platform.
Michael D. Butler says, "There are a ton of local Oklahoma individuals and business owners to thank for supporting Kelsie and getting her to Florida for the final competition. Including Sunsations Tulsa, Tyler Jones Radio Group, Broken Arrow Merchants and M3 New Media clients and Fans."
