At Huddle, we’ve been kicking butt and taking names in the high school space for 17 years. And we’ve learned a thing or two about helping corporate brands with their high school marketing and sponsorship efforts.
Would you believe we’ve pitched some ideas that
corporate prospects didn’t buy? Crazy, right?
But their loss is your gain. In this blog, for the first time ever, I’m going to share five incredible high school sponsorship ideas your company can jump on and own right now.
You need to call us before those other guys do!
1. Give 1
The primary goal of Give 1 is to encourage high school students, teachers, parents, and the local community to pledge to give one hour of community service. Give 1 grants people access to a better life one community at a time.
2. Quick Start
Quick Start is designed to give high schools and families a turbocharged beginning to the school year through school supply donations. The program meets specific needs of the teachers, students and parents, and can be promoted through paid and earned media.
3. Spirit Rally
This concept is similar to the Capital One Mascot Challenge at the collegiate level, but instead the emphasis is on high school spirit. The primary goal of the Spirit Rally is to engage students, teachers, faculty, and local communities to vote for their local (or favorite!) high school mascot.
4. Game Night
This marketing platform allows the title sponsor to “own” high school game nights through branded assets. Each high school receives branded tear drop signs, lawn signs, “Countdown to Game Night Clocks,” and tee shirts. Your brand will truly “own” game nights.
The sponsor encourages high school students to share dream-related photos or aspirations through social media using a unique hashtag. Students are motivated to share their dreams, and several students will be selected to have their dreams fulfilled!
And trust me, there’s more ideas we’re chomping at the bit to share. We’re only limited by our imagination, and we have big imaginations!
Let us know if you’re interested in one of these ideas or in creating some new programs that make more sense for your brand.
